I am currently working with a local authority in Warwickshire 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 3-6 months, but it is likely to roll on beyond this dependent upon performance.
This council is set up for home working, and flexible working arrangements can be discussed with up to 2 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 for next 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 Midlands area, please get in touch with Alex on 020 3795 4835, firstname.lastname@example.org.
