This is your chance to make a career move like no other, working with a diverse group of passionate people, to deliver a positive impact for the greatest city in the world. We are committed to opening up opportunities for diverse, local talent both as an employer and as a regeneration agency.
At LLDC, we appreciate that you may want a flexible approach to working. It’s about giving our employees the opportunity to be adaptable, embracing new ways of working to improve our productivity and performance promoting hybrid-working. This role will be considered for flexible working if required, which could be, for example, job share or compressed hours.
As our Planning Development Manager, you will use your significant demonstrable practical experience of working across the various aspects of the town planning profession, along with your excellent communication, negotiation and organisational skills, to effectively manage a varied caseload of applications and pre-applications. You will manage minor and other small-scale types of planning applications independently, including applications related to major redevelopment schemes, and may progress to manage major applications of your own in time, with support from more experienced colleagues. You will also have the opportunity to manage a small planning enforcement caseload and your own planning appeals. This is an opportunity to bring your work and lived experience to the role and positively contribute to the diverse and inclusive culture of the organisation.
Is it for you?
The ideal candidate will have significant demonstrable experience working within the town planning profession, primarily in a team environment in Development Management, assessing a range of types of planning applications and preparation of reports to senior officers and Planning Committee. Experience of managing your own planning appeals and planning enforcement cases is also expected.
You will need to have the ability and experience of developing strong and effective working relationships with a variety of stakeholders from different backgrounds, including statutory and non-statutory organisations and local, mayoral or national elected representatives. You’ll have a proven ability of carrying out public consultation and engagement with a diverse range of people across communities.
A good understanding of East London is important, including the social, economic, environmental and political make-up of the area. Ideally, you’ll also bring your own lived experience to our team, and use that to demonstrate a commitment to valuing diversity and inclusion in delivering the service to the local community, and contribute positively to an inclusive working environment.
