Fixed term until 1 October 2021
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is embarking on a review of its Local Plan and is keen to strengthen the existing team to achieve what is likely to be a challenging (but rewarding) programme of work. As part of this, we are looking for a Planning Officer to be directly involved in reviewing the plan.
This is a great opportunity to get involved in plan making for a large authority with an excellent track record. East Riding of Yorkshire not only presents a myriad of urban, rural and coastal planning challenges but also the advantage of working in an attractive and relatively affordable part of the country.
This post would suit either a recently qualified planner (planning or related degree) or someone seeking to develop their experience and knowledge in planning. You will need to be creative, pro-active and enthusiastic and able to genuinely rise to the challenge and make a difference.
This post is full-time (37 hours a week) but the council has flexible working arrangements and there may be opportunities for some home working for the right candidate.
For an informal chat about this position, please contact John Craig, Forward Planning Housing Strategy and Development Manager, tel (01482) 396110.

Advert No: PDEV000063.
Closing Date: 29 October 2018.
