Permanent (37 hours) – will consider job share

Grade 6

Salary range £31,346 - £34,729

We are looking for someone who cares about a place having the infrastructure it needs.

In this post you will be responsible for the update and upkeep of Developer Contribution Monitoring Systems (S106 agreements and Community Infrastructure Levy ‘CIL’) to ensure that contributions towards infrastructure delivery, secured as a result of development granted planning permission, are monitored and reviewed to secure the timely payment and spending of financial contributions.

You will be supporting the implementation of the CIL Spending Protocol assisting to recommend where CIL funds are spent. You will then monitor the delivery of CIL funded projects by other Council departments and partner organisations.

You will be organised and an excellent communicator with a great eye for detail. You will be able to work well on your own and as part of a team, keeping motivated and being adaptable to the task in hand. Excellent numerical skills and competence in the use of spreadsheets, knowledge and understanding of the planning system - in particular the Community Infrastructure Levy and infrastructure delivery would be advantageous.

East Hampshire District Council and Havant Borough Council are two separate local authorities who work in strong partnership to deliver services. As part of the shared Developer Contributions Team, you will benefit from a varied experience seamlessly working across both Councils with flexibility on office location as well as working from home.

The two councils face different issues and pressures, and this unique opportunity will give you experience in both rural and urban environments.

We are a dynamic service with a fresh and optimistic approach to meeting challenges and opportunities and are committed to developing our people through training and support to offer a varied experience.

We recognise the importance of a good balance between work and home life so we do everything we can to accommodate flexible working including working from home (dependent on service need) and other arrangements. Please just let us know in your application or at any stage throughout the process (and beyond) if these are options you’d like to explore.

In return for your hard work and contribution, we can offer you a competitive salary, generous annual leave, flexi time, free parking, leisure centre discounts, membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and more.  Take a look at our website for the full range of benefits and support we offer our staff: shttps://www.easthants.gov.uk/benefits-working-ehdc
