Welcome to Planned Resources

We are a boutique agency based in Melbourne, with a focus on providing a high quality service to the town planning and urban design professions. Providing permanent and interim recruitment solutions we provide recruitment expertise from director to graduate level. Our extensive client and candidate contacts cover the public sector, private consultancies as well as extending into the broader Architecture, Environmental, Engineering and Property professions.


Our energies are spent servicing a select number of clients and candidates in a consultative, informed and open manner in a market we understand, have experience in and extensive networks throughout. We promise to be upfront in all our dealings with you, and to not shy away from having the “difficult conversations” as this will benefit your job search/candidate search in the longer term.


Planned Resources has been formed by Director Russell Locke who has over 15 years’ recruitment experience with the last 10 years specialising within the planning and design sectors. Russell has successfully held senior management positions with a large multi- national recruitment firm as well as a boutique specialist.


Planned Resources has provided recruitment services specifically to the Planning and Design sectors across both the public and private sectors and has consistently grown since our inception in 2011. We firmly believe that focusing on a market we understand and have superior networks in means our clients and candidates have an automatic competitive edge.

Our Charter

“Fewer clients, less tapdancing, more truth…”

We aim to represent our client partners as employers of choice through our understanding of their organisation and as such proactively present them as preferred options to our best candidates.
