Job Description

Based at our modern offices in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. This is an exciting opportunity for a self-motivated individual to join our vibrant and progressive Planning team.

In this vital planning role, you’ll enjoy the challenge of working within a busy team, with opportunities to work on both rural and urban projects. You’ll handle a varied case load of planning applications, as well as dealing with appeals. Ideally, we are looking to appoint someone with experience of development management gained either with a local authority or in the private sector, but we will equally consider the right candidate who is at the start of their planning career.

Your responsibilities will include visiting sites to assess the merits of the proposed development, taking accounts of views expressed by partners and the public, and writing reports. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are therefore vital. We’ll also expect you to have strong analytical and judgment skills in order to interpret plans, information and data, as well as being a great problem solver.

The benefits of the post will include flexitime, 24 days annual leave rising to 29 days after 5 years’ service, in addition to bank holidays and an extra day over the Christmas period and access to a generous Local Government Pension Scheme.
