Job Level
Officer, Planner, Senior

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, a new Senior Planning Policy Officer post has been created which will have an important role to play in driving this agenda forward. Another Planning Officer post is also available which will be directly involved in reviewing the plan (this is a fixed term post until 1 October 2021 - salary £23,111).

Both posts provide 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.

To be considered for the senior post you will need to have considerable first-hand experience of plan making and be suitably qualified (with a planning degree).  The Planning Officer post would suit either a recently qualified planner (planning or related degree) or someone seeking to develop their experience and knowledge in planning.  In both cases, you will need to be creative, pro-active and enthusiastic and able to genuinely rise to the challenge and make a difference.

Both posts are available on a full-time basis (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:  PDEV000062.

Closing Date: 29 October 2018.

Interview Date: w/c 5 November 2018.
