Job Details

I am currently working with a Local Authority in Hertfordshire who are looking to bring on an Interim Development Management Team Leader for an initial 3-months, with a view to extend beyond this should all go well. The authority is incredibly busy at the moment, with plenty of applications going through what is a beautiful, rural part of the country.

Your responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • Managing a team of 8 planners, from planning officers to principal planners
  • Liaising with external stakeholders and developers
  • Representing the Council at Committee meetings
  • Signing off work of more junior members of staff

Previous Local Authority experience at Team Leader level and membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute would be looked upon favourably for this post however, they may consider an experienced Principal Planner who has had delegated authority for sign off of applications previously.

They are able to offer a rate of £52p/h. The role will be purely remote to begin with, with constant reviews of this in line with government advice. 

Please do get in touch with Sean on either or 0203 795 4832 to hear more about the role and any other roles I currently have on my books!
