As part of a restructure, and a renewed focus on ‘delivering quality development quickly’, we are looking to appoint two additional Officers to join our friendly Development Management team and gain significant experience of working within a progressive Authority.

We can offer you an exciting opportunity to gain or build upon your experience, with each Officer having responsibility for managing a mixed case load of applications and have the opportunity to work on major infrastructure and development projects, controversial planning applications and appeal cases, covering all types of development issues.

You should hold a planning qualification to RTPI standard or have relevant experience in Development Management appropriate to the position applied for.  For the Senior position it would be preferable if you were MRTPI accredited or eligible, and you should be able to demonstrate expertise / experience in dealing with larger and more complex development schemes.

You will also need excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills, and a strong commitment to customer care. It is also essential that you have the ability to travel throughout the County Borough.

While the Planning Officer position offered is temporary for a period of 12 months, there may be the opportunity for the contract to be extended.

For an informal chat about either position please contact the Development Manager, Steve Ball, on 01639 686727.
