Meet the Team
Ella Lamport Director
After reading History at the University of Nottingham, Ella felt that she wanted to pursue a career where she could focus more on working with people and started her career in Town Planning recruitment. She very quickly became one of the most well-known consultants in her sector and the go-to consultant in the field when it came to delivery and a thorough service.
In her spare time, Ella lives for holidays, and can be found begging her friends to go away on mini breaks with her. This may slow down in the coming years however, as when on home turf she can be found researching which canine companion to bring into her life (any breed suggestions you may have are very welcome!)

Richard Harris Director
Richard began his career recruiting professionals into the Town Planning and Building Control sectors and has been speaking to countless contacts in the market for over 10 years.
His long standing presence in the sector has enabled him to build not only an extensive knowledge of the planning system, but also to cultivate relationships amongst a large network of professionals.
Outside of the office, Richard enjoys playing the odd round of golf, and was also a member of the Great Britain Ultimate Frisbee team and has travelled worldwide competing internationally for the past 12 years.

Alex Ashman Associate Town Planning - Midlands and the North
Alex came to us at Park Avenue with years’ worth of experience working with Town Planners under his belt, to develop and nurture our relationships with clients in the Midlands and the North.
In his spare time, our South African Brummie is a massive rugby fan (a diehard Springbok fan) and an avid watcher of Game of Thrones.

Jack Reed Consultant Town Planning - South East
Jack joined Park Avenue as our first employee, and is in charge of recruiting Planners in the South East and South Coast region.
His favourite things are Tottenham Hotspur, Guinness, white t-shirts (his daily uniform), animals (with a notable shout out to sharks), and hip hop (he wrote his dissertation on Kendrick Lemar).

Sean Lindley Consultant Town Planning - East Anglia
Sean joined Park Avenue to recruit Town Planners into the Central England and Northern home counties region, having turned his attention from studying law to recruitment.
When not at his desk you’ll find him completing crosswords on the train, memorising facts (both useless and mildly interesting) to improve our chances at the pub quiz and chasing other company’s dogs around our office building.

Amy Holt Consultant Town Planning - South West and West
Amy is in charge of recruiting Planners within the South West England region.
Prior to starting her career in recruitment, Amy was scaring tourists senseless on a daily basis, working as an actress at the London Dungeons. She loves going to the theatre, a bit of rhubarb gin, and singing in the office (despite everyone else’s protests!).

Charlotte Gipson Consultant Property and Surveying
The other half of our Surveying and Building Control dream team, Charlotte recruits Building Control Surveyors throughout the East of the country.
Charlotte studied Psychology at the University of Reading, and is a keen traveller who is trying to pick up as many languages as she can! Our Essex girl also loves music, and plays the flute and the piano.

Ben Brown Consultant Property and Surveying
Ben is one of our dedicated Building Control and Surveying recruitment consultants, working with clients in the west of the country.
He joined us having graduated in Sport and Social Sciences at the University of Bath, and is a keen sportsman who enjoys football on and off the pitch, supporting Man City. (Somewhat of a contradiction to this, he’s a Somerset boy at heart, has sat behind Coldplay’s drums on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury!)
