Economy and Growth
North Lincolnshire is a great place to live. In fact, according to a recent survey it is the best place in the UK to raise children. With so many good and outstanding schools, masses of green space and affordable housing, there really is nowhere better. North Lincolnshire is a rural county with picturesque villages and within easy reach of the North East, Yorkshire and the East Midlands. The motorway network enables easy access to many major cities.
North Lincolnshire Council wants to increase prosperity for North Lincolnshire - prosperity for our residents, our communities and our businesses. We want North Lincolnshire to be thriving and successful and the people who live and work here to have prosperous, safe and healthy lives. We want our existing and future businesses to be competitive and to thrive and grow and in turn continue to support prosperity for North Lincolnshire.
We need you to help us achieve this vision. Working alongside our Economy and Growth Team, this is an opportunity for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to gain exceptional experience and make a real difference to the future lives of our residents within the local planning authority of North Lincolnshire Council.
You will play a pivotal role in progressing several key regeneration projects, with a focus on larger strategic schemes, and delivering high quality outcomes. Excellent customer focus is essential as is your ability to manage these projects to agreed timescales and quality criteria. For this role you will need to be confident and effective in dealing with multiple key stakeholders such as residents and Councillors.
