Team Leader

A Local Authority in Berkshire is looking for a skilled consultant to take on a Team Leader role within one of the area teams.

The Council requires a Team Leader to manage one of the area teams. You would be supporting the team in processing a range of applications including majors, assisting and mentoring members of the team in their learning and development and representing the Planning Department at committee. You will be allocating and signing off applications as well as working on a small caseload of your own major applications. You will be liaising with developers, Members and other managers within the Council.

Candidates should hold several years of Development Management experience within a Local Authority Planning Department, having previously dealt with major applications. You should have strong communication skills and be able to manage large projects to timescales. It would be preferable if you were MRTPI accredited. Experience in a management or Team Leader role would also be highly beneficial, but is not essential; the Council would be interested in candidates who are currently at Principal level and looking to make the step up.

The contract will be for an initial 6 months but is likely to extend. They can offer flexible working arrangements and competitive rates.

If you are interested in this role or hearing about other Principal and Senior Development Management roles in the area, please email me at or call me on 02077669063 to discuss further.
