x2 Planning Enforcement Officers
Our client is a busy Local Authority in East London and they require 2 Planning Enforcement Officers to join them for contract roles and manage large case loads of planning enforcement investigations. These cases will likely focus on residential properties but may also include commercial premises. As a Planning Enforcement Officer your fundamental role will be to carry out site visits and investigate potential planning control breaches, related appeals and planning application case-work including negotiations and conflict resolution with developers and other interested parties. You will be required to record evidence and detailed information in a precise format as it may be required should a case progress to prosecution.
To carry out this role it is absolutely essential you have worked within a similar capacity within a local authority setting. You will need a good working knowledge of planning legislation and you will need to be well organised. As you will be largely working under your own initiative you will need to be disciplined in your approach to work and you will need to be able to manage work within agreed timeframes. Formal town planning qualifications are not absolutely necessary if you have an equivalent level of work experience in this specialist area.
These roles have initially been released as a 3 month contracts, but are likely to be extended. The rate will depend upon your level of appointment and experience but it is expected to be between £26 - £3op/hr umbrella. Please get in touch for further details.
