Contract

We are working with a local authority in Somerset who are urgently seeking a Planning Officer to join their team, to assist during a busy period and due to the absence of permanent members of staff. 

This role will involve working in Development Management on a mixed caseload of applications, from householders up to larger more complex minor proposals. It is anticipated that this contract will last 6 months, but it is likely to roll on beyond this dependant upon performance. 

This council is set up for home working, and flexible working arrangements can be discussed with up to 3 days a week from home.

Ideally you will have experience in local authority planning (DM) and be able to hit the ground running with a caseload of applications. This is a great opportunity to join a friendly team of Planners on a contract basis, with the potential for it to turn into a more permanent solution. 

The manager is looking to conduct telephone interviews and face to face interviews this week, for a start ideally ASAP, though they will wait for the right candidate.

If you would like more information on this position, or others we are working on in the West Country area, please get in touch with Richard on 020 3795 4830, richard@park-avenue.co.uk

We do not advertise all of our vacancies, especially if we have suitable candidates in mind to undertake the work we get in. To get the best chance at securing the perfect contract for you, let us know your preferences and we will be happy to call you when we find a position that you may be interested in. info@park-avenue.co.uk
