Are you looking for a fresh challenge in planning policy, infrastructure planning and delivery or development viability? If you thrive on action, you will love Dartford.  Working for an ambitious authority located on the edge of London, no two days will be the same. 

We have strong housing and commercial delivery taking place across the Borough, including at Ebbsfleet and exciting proposals to transform Dartford town centre.  We need an array of infrastructure projects to support this growth. 

We are looking for a multi-talented individual to support the work of the Local Plans team by identifying infrastructure requirements and connecting with service providers to ensure that developer contributions help deliver the infrastructure we need. 

You will need to have an understanding of planning policy and experience of infrastructure planning.  Strong communication, influencing and negotiation skills are essential. Added to this, you will have good organisational skills.  If you enjoy a challenge and like to make a positive difference in your work, we would love to hear from you.

Benefits: career average pension scheme, professional fee payment, flexible working including possibility of some remote working, free on-site parking, employee benefits package and generous leave entitlement. The Council’s offices are in a highly accessible location, next to Dartford station with frequent services from Central London (Oyster Card coverage) and North Kent.  Road connections via the M25 and A2 are also excellent.
