I am currently working with a Local Authority in the lovely Devon county, who are looking to take on a Senior Planning Officer to help with applications on a contract basis. The contract will initially run for 3 months, likely to be extended.
To be responsible to the relevant Lead Officer for the processing of applications, appeals, enforcement and pre-application enquiries. You will be expected to hit the ground running with complex minor applications and experience with some larger schemes will be desired. The post holder should also be able to present proposals to Planning Committee. Some experience in a rural area would preferred but not essential.
The rate of pay is negotiable depending on experience. You will need to have a full driver's licence and access to a car. The council can offer remote working, you would need to travel for site visits.
The council are collecting CVs now with a view to interview next week. If you are interested in this role, please do not hesitate to contact Amy on 02037954828, firstname.lastname@example.org and she can give you more information.
I have experience working with Local Authorities within the South West, should you be looking for other positions in these regions please get in touch so we can discuss further!
