Job overview

Planning obligations and community benefits are at the heart of planning. We are looking for a dynamic and hardworking individual to join the Council’s Planning Obligations Team on a 2 year fixed term contract.


You will be responsible for working with developers and council departments to ensure compliance with S106 agreements, as well as be involved in the implementation of the Community Infrastructure Levy. You will play a key role in the process of allocating CIL and S106 funds to deliver key projects across the Council. This process involves extensive collaboration with elected Members, senior council officers and external organisations. Your main focus will be to contribute towards achieving sustainable development, and ensuring that developer contributions deliver benefits to the local communities.  

We would welcome applications from graduates or people at an early stage of their career as well as those having had some experience working in a planning department previously or with a background in regeneration, community planning and other relevant fields. You will have strong problem solving skills, ability and aptitude for joint working across different technical disciplines, and strong IT skills, particularly with Excel. Some experience of financial and project management would be desirable, but not essential. 

Working for our organisation

Islington is a diverse and vibrant inner London borough, which continues to experience a large amount of development and change. We have imaginative planning policies, a positive and open attitude to growth, and a desire to secure development which addresses key local priorities such as maximising the delivery of genuinely affordable housing.

The post offers a friendly team environment, flexible working hours, generous annual leave and a pension scheme.
