Job Details

I’m currently working with a Local Authority in Sussex who are looking for an experienced Principal Policy Officer to join them on an initial 6 month contract, which is likely to be extended. My client is willing to negotiate on pay rates for the right candidate, but it will likely be between £40-45p/h. They can also be flexible with regards to remote working, and the role can be 100% remote for the right candidate.

Duties will include:

  • Leading on the progress of the Local Plan Review (consultation aimed for next year)
  • Leading on key evidence studies and data analysis.
  • Drafting policy documents.
  • Carrying out sustainability appraisal work.
  • Leading on community and stakeholder consultation at certain stages of the strategic planning process, including processing and assessing consultation responses.
  • Providing advice to Development Management officers, other Council services, elected Members, stakeholders and residents on a range of planning policy matters and technical areas.

You will ideally be MRTPI accredited and must hold a degree relative to Town Planning. You should also have proven experience consulting on Local Plans at a Senior/Principal level.
