Senior Development Management Officer


Looking for a career in one of the most exciting planning departments in the country?

We are one of the country’s largest unitary authorities extending from the edge of York across the Yorkshire Wolds to the chalk cliffs of Flamborough Head.  We cover over 40 miles of the coast down to Spurn Head and most of the north bank of the Humber Estuary. The council and its Planning Service are based in Beverley, which was voted by the Sunday Times in 2018 as one of the best places to live in the Country.

We are a busy department dealing with an interesting and varied caseload of major and minor planning applications including large housing schemes; renewable energy proposals including solar farms, on shore windfarms and biomass plants; infrastructure and industrial projects.

We value our Development Management team for their experience, skills, knowledge and commitment and are constantly developing the service with investment in new technology and training for the future.

You must be looking to progress your planning career and have experience of working in a planning department and have or be working towards a relevant planning qualification.

We currently have three other posts available:

  • Principal Development Management Officer – we are looking for a highly motivated team player, with significant experience working at a senior level in a planning service, educated to degree level and ideally MRTPI
  • Development Management Officer – this post is ideal if you are recently qualified to A levels or equivalent qualifications and are interested in a career in planning
  • Development Services Assistant – if you are looking for a career in planning and are interested in working in a fast paced and exciting planning service assisting the Development Management Officers with the opportunity of career progression to become a Development Management Officer yourself we would like to hearfrom you.

We can offer a discounted leisure centre membership, a staff discount scheme, salary sacrifice scheme, including car benefit and cycle to work, flexible working arrangements to suit your lifestyle, a great pension scheme and you will be working for a council which is recognised nationally as one of the best in the country.
