Stevenage is Britain’s first post-war New Town. It sits in northern Hertfordshire within easy reach of London by both road and rail. The Borough faces major regeneration and development challenges.

We are about to embark on our latest local plan and the intention is that the fixed-term nature of this new post will last through until the adoption of that plan.

We are seeking a senior professional, whose role will include taking the lead on various elements of the local plan and/or evidential studies; managing project work, including the work of external consultants. We would particularly like a candidate with working knowledge of Infrastructure Delivery Plans.

You will work well with the minimum of supervision to meet deadlines and have the ability to analyse, interpret and prepare both written information and numerical data, communicating effectively both orally and in writing.

We offer a comprehensive benefits package.
