Rother is a vibrant and inclusive district and we are looking for forward thinking planning professionals to join our talented and enthusiastic Development Management and Planning Policy teams. A small number of vacancies have arisen across the service and the new post holders will join the teams at an exciting time. Development Management officers will play a key role in progressing planning applications and the Planning Policy/CIL position will provide significant support as part of the Local Plan Review.

Each of these posts plays an important role in helping us to shape Rother. You will be supporting our customers and helping them to understand the role good planning makes in shaping an area.

As a valuable member of our planning team, you’ll join a progressive council that always puts their customers first.  We know that in order to provide the best for our residents, businesses and visitors, we need to do the same for our people. We have set out to make our workplaces happy and safe environments where staff feel content and valued.

Excellent project and time management skills are essential. You’ll need to have excellent analysis and problem-solving skills, as well as the ability to appreciate the long-term vision of the work you’re doing. You will be determined to do your best and help shape the Rother of the future to the benefit of all who live and work here.

In return we are committed to both personal and professional learning and development. We offer flexible working and understand the value of a good work/life balance. Well-being is important to us and we offer regular staff training, events and an employee assistance programme to support our colleagues. We offer auto-enrolment into the Local Government Pension Scheme and access to the Rother Lifestyle platform which enables employees to benefit from discounts from 100’s of high street retailers and leisure companies.

Relocation packages are available to assist the right candidates.
