Senior Planning Officer

We are working with a local authority in Kent who are urgently seeking a Senior Planner to join their team, to assist during a busy period and cover in the absence of a permanent member of staff. 

This role will involve working on a mixed caseload of applications, from more minor proposals, up to submissions for residential sites of around 50 dwellings. The initial term of the contract will be 3-4 months, but it is highly likely to roll on beyond this dependant upon performance. 

This council is set up for home working, and flexible working arrangements can be discussed.

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 Kent area, please get in touch with Ella on 020 3795 4828,

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.
