The Borough of Waverley is a beautiful place, consistently rated as one of the best places in the Country to live and to work. The Borough lies within the Surrey Hills but is within easy reach of London and the south coast.
The Council is committed to investing in its Planning and Economic Development Service. Following an internal promotion of the former post holder to Senior Planner level, we are now seeking to fill this important post.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated person to join our busy, but friendly Planning Policy Team and help prepare and deliver the new Waverley Local Plan and the Community Infrastructure Levy.

You will be keen to take on a new challenge, be meticulous in maintaining accurate records and be able to manage your workload to deliver tasks to a high standard and on time. We are looking for a genuine team player with the determination to succeed. In return, we can offer a competitive salary, generous leave, flexible-working and a supportive and nurturing work environment in which to develop your skills.
