You must have completed and passed a planning qualification or equivalent at level 4 and be an Associate Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute. AVDC is supportive of training and development of staff.
We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, highly motivated and organised. You will need to be an excellent communicator, be able to work to a high professional standard and demonstrate an understanding of planning legislation and requirements.
If you believe you have the skills and qualities to join us then we look forward to hearing from you.
On Monday 12 March it was announced by the government that the five councils in Buckinghamshire (including Aylesbury Vale District Council) may become a single unitary authority. Further details regarding the Minister’s ‘minded to’ decision are available on our website (https://www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/modernising-local-government).
Any changes made to the structure of local authorities in the county may affect council employees in the future but we do not anticipate any immediate impact. Changes are likely to take a period of time and will not affect all areas of the Council.

AVDC is at the forefront of changing the way that local authorities work in the future. We have adopted a more commercial approach where we strive to generate income streams and find more cost effective ways of operating.
Our vision is to secure the economic, social, and environmental wellbeing of the area. Our aim is to create more business opportunities, so that ultimately we can ‘give back’ to the community. We already have success in providing extra home and garden services for sale to residents under the Limecart brand, and the business support services we offer under the Incgen brand.
We pride ourselves on offering a fantastic, family friendly place to work. We promote flexible working with many opportunities for learning and development, along with an attractive benefits package. We have a state of the art head office at The Gateway, with easy access and free parking.
As an ambitious council with a strong culture based on clearly defined values, underpinned by a Commercial Behavioural Framework, we are looking for enthusiastic, commercially minded, motivated people to be part of our team.
