Nottinghamshire is a great place to live, work and visit with a vibrant city centre, a number of historic market towns and wide expanses of countryside reflecting the county’s rich history and geology from the Trent Valley to Sherwood Forest, to the English Civil War and the county’s rich mining history immortalised through the works of D H Lawrence.

Working alongside the wider Planning Group, we are looking for an experienced planner capable of managing a large and varied caseload of planning applications, which the Council has the responsibility to determine. These could be minerals or waste developments, the Council’s own development such as schools and roads, EIA development and also involvement in an increasing number of Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects for which the Council is a host Authority. You will have the opportunity to present your applications to Planning Committee and represent the Council at any appeals related to your caseload.

You must possess the organisational skills and personal drive which allow you to progress proposals on your own initiative, proactively solve problems utilising your strong interpersonal skills, and make decisions to meet service delivery targets, all whilst working with tact and diplomacy in representing the Council on politically sensitive issues. You will also be committed to excellent customer care and have an understanding and commitment to the Council’s Equal Opportunities Policy.

The Council will encourage and support you to develop both your personal and professional skills to their full potential.

Working in a flexible environment of office and/or home working which best supports your work/life balance, you will be entitled to 28 days annual leave (or 33 days if you have five years Local Government service) and have the ability to work flexibly and accrue two days flexi leave per four week period, subject to service delivery requirements. There are a host of other employee benefits available including access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.

For a formal discussion about the vacancy, please call Jonathan Smith, Interim Group Manager, Planning on 0115 9932580.

Closing date: 25th February 2024. 

Interviews: Week commencing 04/03/2024.
