Full Time

We are currently working on an exciting opportunity to join a council in the West Country, as a Senior/Principal Planning Officer.

In this role you will be taking on your own varied caseload of applications including on complex planning projects, housing schemes and development consent orders. You will also be required from time to time to supervise some of the more junior staff in project teams. This area is an exciting area to work in, earmarked for substantial growth in the next few years and a great place to develop your planning career.

Ideally you will have a background in Development Management within Local Authority and able to give advice to all stakeholders in the planning process including, developers, professional agents, councillors, parish/town councils, service providers, other council officers, community organisations and members of the public. It will be important that you are able to develop excellent working relationships with these parties to achieve the best possible outcomes.

In return for this, the Council are offering a competitive hourly rate (up for negotiation for the right person), and flexible working arrangements with the option of working up to three days a week from home.

It's a great chance for somebody already at Principal level to work on an exciting range of projects, or for a talented Senior to step up for a promotion.

If you'd like more details (confidentially of course) and a full job spec, please get in touch with us.
