Chief Planning Officer
Salary: £73,288 - £82,503
Imagine an amazing Planning function.
Now build it.
We’re a small district but an ambitious one. Located deep in Surrey, Tandridge has a bold Planning agenda and the determination to serve its residents well. As Chief Planning Officer, you’ll be at the heart of our efforts, shaping our progress, best practice and achievements. If you’re keen to make your mark through smart strategic leadership, this is your opportunity.
An experienced and driven Planning professional, you’ll have what it takes to build a modern, high-performing function. You’ll be the strategic lead for local operations and front-line service delivery, but also responsible for innovative solutions that improve services for our community. It’s a chance to get your teeth into a wide range of tasks: injecting commercial and customer focus into strategy, promoting the Council as community leader and maximising return on planning investment. Meanwhile, you’ll be overseeing day-to-day services including Planning Strategy, Policy and Enforcement and Building Control.
We’re looking for a solid Planning background and proven expertise. You’ll know what good looks like and you can inspire your team to achieve it. You’ll also know about the issues faced by local government and how to achieve improvement, value for money and efficiency. And, you’ll have leadership experience, a gift for performance management and a relevant degree (or equivalent). With these talents, you’ll win the trust and support of stakeholders, as you drive the Development Management agenda. It’s all about getting the best out of teams while helping to deliver our strategic priorities as part of the Executive Leadership Team.
Planning is a key area in Tandridge and local plans are close to completion. Join us.
