I am currently working with a Cambridgeshire and Essex based Local Authority, who are both seeking an experienced Senior Development Control Officer to join them on a contract basis for 3 months +.

The roles will both see you dealing with a mixed caseload of household minors to applications ranging from 10 to 35 unit dwellings. You will assist in their current caseload as well as take on your own new applications.

My client may be able to offer some flexible working arrangements after you have settled in, with you working 37 hours a week. They are looking for somebody to start as soon as possible and will be offering an initial 3-month contract, with a view to extend beyond.  

Pay rates are yet to be confirmed but the right candidate can expect to attain a rate in the late £20s to early £30s per hour.

The successful candidate will ideally have a few years of experience in a Local Authority based Planning Development Management role. A chartered and qualified planner (MRTPI) is preferred but not essential. Access to a car would be of benefit as the role will see you undergoing regular site visits.

If you would like to be considered for this role, or to find out about other roles please contact me; Klaudia here at The Oyster Partnership on 020 77 66 9000 or email Klaudia on
