About the Role
The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have put the Newham in the international spotlight and are driving change at an unprecedented pace and scale. With an abundance of land for development, world-class transport and digital infrastructure, and a young, energetic and increasingly skilled workforce, the borough is ideally placed to accommodate much of London’s growth in the 21st century. As development and investment in the UK’s capital moves steadily eastwards, Newham is set to become a new heart for London. This is a rare opportunity to join this high performing Planning Team.
We will ensure that you gain valuable planning experience across the entire spectrum of development management assisting and leading on the delivery of all types of development. You will work in a multifunctional service with the opportunity to gain experience in planning enforcement, planning policy, planning appeals, and transport planning.
If you want to help shape this part of London – and improve and progress the borough for all its communities – come and join the team!
Newham will offer you a unique working environment within a London borough that is at the centre of many of Europe’s most exciting regeneration projects, including the Olympic Legacy and the Royal Docks, building thousands of new homes and creating thousands of new jobs, leading to a major uplift of the borough as a whole.
With c.2000 new homes targeted to be delivered per year by 2025 and 25 major regeneration projects underway, including Stratford City, the Olympic Legacy, Canning Town redevelopment plus the arrival of Crossrail in 2018, Newham is leading in the delivery of creating distinctive and high quality places.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly-motivated individual with experience or a keen interest in planning to join our dynamic Planning Team. This is a key role in the Planning Team and you will play an integral role in driving forward development within the Borough and effectively turn our vision into reality as part of our Planning Team.
We are looking for team players who are self-motivated, enthusiastic and have the ability to manage a varied caseload with a strong commercial focus.
You will contribute to the delivery of an efficient and effective Development Management service for the borough, including engagement with developers and other key stakeholders in enabling the delivery of quality developments within a robust planning policy framework.
