Salary £38,890 - £43,857
Full time; 37 Hours per week
We currently have a number of exciting opportunities within the Bedford Borough Planning Service. The Council rarely advertises planning positions, but it is currently investing in the planning service in recognition of the Government growth agenda for the Oxford to Cambridge Arc.
Not only will you have an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and supportive team around you to help you grow and develop your career in planning, but you will have the chance to progress and determine a wide variety of planning applications, appeals, enforcement cases and pre application enquiries. The roles sit within Development Management but rotation into planning enforcement and/or planning appeals provides an opportunity to broaden your planning skills.
We are therefore looking for motivated and well organised individuals with at least 5 years’ experience in development management (although planning consultancy experience in DM focused work will be considered) who can deal with a range of different application types, of varying complexity and has a good grasp of planning legislation. Excellent customer service skills are a must for the role, as well being a team player.
