About Liam


Liam is our longest-serving consultant in the Town Planning division, covering London and the Southeast, from Kent to Hampshire and up to Berkshire. With a wealth of experience, he expertly works with interim consultants, from officer level to executive positions, across the following areas:

  • Development Management

  • Planning Policy

  • Planning Enforcement

  • Conservation & Historic Buildings

  • Interim Management


Originally from Cambridgeshire, Liam studied Radio Production at Staffordshire University before moving to Nottingham. Eager to transition into recruitment, he relocated to London in 2021 and has been making a significant impact ever since. Liam's warm nature and genuine ability to make his candidates and clients feel heard and valued set him apart. He brings a positive energy to the entire Park Avenue team, making everyone laugh and creating a welcoming and upbeat atmosphere.


A football fanatic (both English and American), Liam spends his free time watching or playing the game, although supporting Crystal Palace can be a challenge at times! He also enjoys setting himself running challenges; most recently, he ran a half marathon with Wembley as the finish line to raise money for Men’s Mental Health.


Liam's vibrant personality and commitment to his team make him an invaluable member of Park Avenue. His passion for helping others and his infectious enthusiasm brighten up the office every day.


What words the team use to describe Liam...






Excellent candidate care as per normal for Park Avenue.

Development Manager (Planning)

Brilliant working with Liam. He was quick to secure the contract and get all documents sent to me.

Senior Planning Policy Officer

Liam is always helpful in relation to the questions I have in relation to the role(s) I am going for. Liam is courteous and responds quickly to emails and phone calls. Liam comes across as the consummate professional and I really cannot fault him!

Planning Enforcement Officer

Liam South was proactive in contacting me, remembering I had contacted him previously about a specific candidate. I also appreciated him then contacting me first when the contractor became available again. He is respectful not to chase me when he knows I haven't got a post available, or call up to make 'small talk' or give unsuitable CVs. He is professional, responsive and easy to communicate with, which means I can work with him confidently to navigate the current process challenges my organisation is having, and provide greater job security to my contractor.

Planning Policy Team Leader

Liam has been my Recruitment Consultant for the past year and I have been extremely pleased with the personable approach, attention to the smallest detail and high standard of service. He is very professional, and trustworthy. Liam responds quickly to queries, provides clear feedback and understands the role and person spec very well. I would highly recommend Liam to other Planning Professionals and have (with his agreement), passed his details on to some Contractor colleagues.
