The post is an excellent opportunity for a recent graduate from a planning or related background to join the department and advance their career amongst supportive and motivated officers within a leading Authority.
Swansea sits at the heart of Wales’ South West region and boasts an outstanding quality of life for residents and visitors. Future Wales: The National Plan identifies the area as one for significant growth over the next 20 years, and the Council’s adopted Local Development Plan (LDP) sets out an ambitious placemaking framework to deliver that growth. The successful candidate will get the chance to play an important supporting role on a wide range of exciting development projects coming forward across the city, including: large scale neighbourhood extensions on greenfield and brownfield sites; mixed use commercial-led city centre development; green infrastructure led public realm projects; and the Council’s own home building programme that aims to deliver a thousand homes over the coming decade. They will also support the production of the next generation of planning frameworks to guide development across Swansea, including the replacement LDP and new Strategic Development Plan.
You will be given the necessary management and support to enable you to successfully undertake your role and develop professionally.
