Are you interested in becoming a Planner or a Town Planner who is experienced in dealing with a wide range of pre-application enquiries, complex planning applications, appeals and post application work?  Are you a motivated and well organised worker with a positive outlook who is able to deal with a busy and demanding caseload?

Winchester City Council has three exciting career opportunities within its Planning Department to ensure our service remains high quality and efficient. We are seeking enthusiastic Officers to help shape our charming historic towns, villages and countryside.  Our emerging Local Plan is ambitious and we are preparing also to deal with the anticipated planning reforms.

The roles of Principal and Senior Planning Officer are ideal opportunities for planners to broaden their experience and progress their career. You will be a planner accustomed to dealing with a mix of planning work and capable of delivering good performance and high standards of customer care. 

The role of Planning Officer is an ideal opportunity for a trainee planner with a keen interest in the built and rural environments to start a career in planning. You will have some office experience, preferably in planning, and have an understanding of the planning process. 

As a Principal Planning Officer you will be able to demonstrate experience of Public Inquiries and will be a member of the RTPI.

As a Senior Planning Officer you will be able to demonstrate experience of Informal Hearings and will be a member of the RTPI or eligible for membership.

Our offices are based in the heart of Winchester’s Historic Cathedral Town and the successful candidates will benefit from free parking, essential car user allowance, flexible home working and paid Membership fees to the RTPI, along with a range of other benefits including UK Healthcare Health Plan, generous contributory Local Government pension, discounted bus travel and public transport loans, volunteering opportunities, flexible working arrangements, a cycle scheme, and career opportunities working across the department.
