Job Level
Consultant, Officer, Planner


In this role your work will focus on assessing available green space across the district our client covers with a view to determining sites for development. There are currently just over 600 identified sites that need to be evaluated and you will need to carry out site visits and produce reports detailing your recommendations. You will be expected to work fairly independently to manage a busy schedule in line with our client's agreed objectives for delivery.

Our client would like to see applications from those with a background in planning or surveying who have experience in a similar capacity; the role would likely suit those with a background in land surveying or urban design where the emphasis has been on developing green space. You will need a good knowledge of UK planning legislation and you will need to be able to appreciate the nature of this role and it's function within our clients wider planning objectives. It is essential that you can work under minimal supervision so you will need to be well organised, pro-active and focused in your approach to work.

Our client is based in Bedford and will initially offer the role on a 3 month contract basis but given the scale of this project there is scope for this role to be extended for some time. We expect the rate to be between £25-£30/hr.
