Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
About Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
Take your planning and leadership experience further by making one of London’s most vibrant and densely populated boroughs an even better place to live, work and visit.
At Kensington and Chelsea, we have unmatched built heritage sitting alongside iconic retail centres, a vibrant specialist employment market, an international medical quarter and world class cultural attractions. We also have many challenges facing us. We’re not only home to the wealthy but also to some of the most deprived wards in London. So, we’re committed to delivering growth in the Borough, with homes for all, and have started our own ambitious housing programme.
We’re developing new ways of engaging with all our residents and providing high-quality accessible infrastructure for now and future generations.
We’re looking for experienced and confident planners to help us make this happen.
As a high-performing planning department we deal with a wide range of applications, making us one of the busiest planning authorities in the country. We’re a dynamic forward-thinking team with a can-do approach and are always striving to improve our service.
Putting communities first and working together with respect and integrity are our values, and we want people who share these to come and work with us.
We are a major employer in the area with over 2,000 employees and we aim to put local people at the heart of decision making in everything we do.
After the tragedy at Grenfell the Council’s focus is to make a strong, positive difference for the people and communities we serve.
Working in partnership, listening to and valuing the personal experiences of people in our communities, we will act with openness, honesty compassion and humility.
Your experience and expertise are important, however, we aren’t just recruiting according to qualifications. We want to recruit people who share our values.
