Selby District Council has an ambition to become the best planning authority in England through a commitment to working closely and pro-actively with our customers and through the continued improvement of our services.
We currently have the following positions available:
- Principal Planning Officer
- Senior Planning Officer
The Selby District is a great place to be. Our market towns and picturesque villages support a great quality of life and perfect for families. Our area is in one of the safest counties in England and we benefit from top quality education, including one of the best further education colleges in England.
House prices here are lower than our urban neighbours, which means you get more for your money. We are well connected too, with great road and rail links to all parts of the UK. We are also within easy reach of some of the UK’s leading cities including Leeds, York and a previous City of Culture, Hull.
Our Planning team has a key role to play in the future of Selby District and helping to deliver high quality development, place making and support sustainable economic growth. This includes helping to deliver some of the largest development projects in North Yorkshire. It is hard to find a more rewarding and challenging place to work than in Planning at Selby. We are the fastest growing part of North Yorkshire, with the challenge of balancing this growth whilst protecting our historic heritage and Green Belts.
You will work alongside colleagues in Planning and our Economic Development and Regeneration teams in a local authority with a strong commitment to good planning and development, as well as with a range of external partners including North Yorkshire County Council and neighbouring Local Authorities.
We are continuing to invest in the Planning service and are looking for ambitious and enthusiastic people to complete our team. You may be a newly qualified planner or seeking opportunities to further develop your career. You may not currently work in planning but have qualifications in a related discipline and can demonstrate the skills and experience required for the posts.
If you are as productive as you are ambitious and collaborative as you are enterprising, this is your chance to take real ownership of your work and help us deliver our ambition to become the best planning authority in England.
Both positions are advertised as full-time (37 hours per week), but we actively welcome applications from candidates who wish to work part-time/job-share hours too.
The Council offers free car parking, subsidised leisure membership scheme, generous pension scheme membership, a relocation package and an employee benefits scheme.
If you are interested in these opportunities and would like an informal discussion, please contact Ruth Hardingham, Planning Development Manager, on 01757 292120.
Closing date for both vacancies: Sunday 15 August 2021.
