Birmingham is changing….and fast! The city is booming as it sees billions of pounds of investment in major development and infrastructure projects. Are you interested in helping to shape the future of our city?

We are looking to appoint a number of graduate level, planning, development, transportation, highways, built environment and jobs and skills support officers to join one of the country’s most exciting local authorities.

You will help deliver the City Council’s ambitious growth plans, which include:

  • the development of 50,000 new homes including a 5,000 dwelling sustainable urban extension
  • major retail, office and leisure schemes
  • over £5bn of infrastructure projects along with major employment support schemes.

There will be opportunities to work on some of the most exciting major upcoming projects in the country including High Speed Rail 2 (HS2), the expanded City Centre Enterprise Zone, and the award winning Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust.

You will be given the opportunity to gain practical work experience in a dedicated role or across a range of service areas including development, planning, housing, transportation, highways, business, employment and skills investment. This will help you to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to develop your career and work towards membership of a relevant professional body.

We are seeking passionate individuals ranging from newly qualified graduates to people who have previously gained a professional qualification in the built environment or business/employment related disciplines and want to take their first step into the sector.

We will give you paid leave to complete your studies in order to gain a professional qualification as long as you do not already hold an accredited Master’s Degree.
