An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Support Officer to join the Planning Admin Team which handles the administrative and technical processes involved in the submission, registration, validation, notification and determination of planning and related applications as well as various tasks associated with planning appeals.

Based in the recently refurbished Town Hall offices in Reigate, you would be part of a busy and energetic team which operates paperless working. Principally, you will register and administer some of the 2,500 planning and related applications received each year, providing support to both the Planning Admin Team Leader and Planning Officers. The role requires extensive use of the Council’s document management and database systems so strong IT literacy is essential although training and support will be given. It would be ideally suited to a well organised individual with good attention to detail.

In exchange for your expertise, experience and enthusiasm, we will offer support in continuing your personal and career development, in addition to providing a wide range of employment linked benefits.

We will provide you with competitive annual leave, and contribute 15% towards the LGPS pension scheme. You will also have access to a range of discounts including annual ‘Better’ leisure centre membership, local and high street stores, and salary sacrifice schemes including a cycle lease scheme.

For an informal discussion about the role, please call Andrew Benson on 01737 276175

We are proud to support the guaranteed interview schemes for those meeting the essential criteria for the role, under the Disability Confident employer scheme for disabled candidates, and the ‘Veteran’s scheme’ for ex-armed forces candidates.

Closing date: 27th March 2018

Interview date: 4th April 2018
