Job Details

I am working with a Council in Surrey who are looking for an experienced interim Planning Officer on an initial 3 month rolling contract. They would be looking for the candidate to start in the next 2-3 weeks and the role would be centred around helping on large strategic sites within the Borough. You would have your own caseload as well as supporting the Principal Officers with the larger sites, by assisting on some of the smaller items that come with the sites. It is a great opportunity to gain experience working on some larger projects/applications.

Duties will include:

  • Overseeing your own caseload of minor applications
  • Support the Principal Officers in dealing with the Borough's incoming large, strategic sites
  • Provision of paid pre-application advice to developers, architects and external consultants.
  • Co-ordinate and independently carry out site visits and prepare detailed reports.

Candidate’s Required Experience:

  • 1-3 years of experience within Local Authorities.
  • MRTPI would be desirable, but not essential
  • Previous experience of dealing with minor applications

Working Arrangements:

  • Rate is negotiable depending on experience - likely up to £40p/h
  • IR35 status is inside
  • Remote working available, site visits essential and committee meetings essential (likely to only be once per month each)

If you feel your skills and experience would be suited to this role, please call 020 7766 9075 and ask for James!
