RTPI Guide To Working Internationally

The growing number of RTPI members interested in working outside of the United Kingdom and Ireland has prompted the Institute to publish its first guide to working internationally.

A Guide To Working Internationally contains general information, tips and relevant contacts for working in planning around the world. The comprehensive guide is for individual members and independent consultancies looking to expand beyond the UK and Ireland.

Peter Geraghty, Chair of the RTPI International Committee said:

“Planning is an international profession and our members’ skills and experience is highly sought after around the world. We’ve noticed a growing interest from our members in working outside of their home country and think they’ll find this guide an incredibly valuable resource.”

The RTPI has recently provided advice to members about the current global challenges facing society and the international commitments to address them. Members interested in international planning issues can join RTPI International for the latest news, information and international developments.

RTPI members who are interested in working internationally are welcome to attend the Careers Surgery at the Planning Convention on 21 June. Marion Frederiksen, RTPI International Officer, will be available to give one to one advice about working outside the UK and Ireland.
