Location: 29 Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4ND

We are looking for a Policy Planner to help us to shape and care for the fantastic historic environment of the South West. You will take lead responsibility for providing expert planning policy advice to partners and colleagues, guiding key development plans across the region, including representing us at Examinations in Public. 

The region is awash with distinctive heritage, such as 2000 years of history in Bath, Brunel`s engineering heritage running the length of the SW and the legacy of the mining industry that has forged the landscapes of Cornwall. Your informed and persuasive advice will ensure that well-evidenced and robust policies protect these exceptional historic places in Development Plans and Strategies.

To be successful in this role you will be a planner keen to share your knowledge and experience across a range of policy sectors, from the environment, transport, to housing. You will have a thorough understanding and substantial experience of the UK planning system along with demonstrable skills of influencing stakeholders. As a strong team player with good interpersonal skills, you will enjoy working collaboratively within a multi-disciplinary team based in Bristol. 

We offer a wide benefits package including a competitive pension scheme, 28 days holiday, corporate discounts and free entry into English Heritage sites. 

Closing date: 8 October 2019.

Interviews are expected to be held on 15 October 2019 in our Bristol office.
