If you are a planning officer who is keen to be involved with the creation of a Local Plan, this is the role for you.
With production of Elmbridge’s new local plan reaching the next key stage, we are in need of a planning policy officer to participate in the preparation, monitoring, and review of the Local Plan.
This role will broaden your planning knowledge and experience, strengthen your skillset and be both challenging and rewarding.
Being a planner in Elmbridge
Elmbridge is one of the busiest local planning authorities in the country. With land values that rival London and a population of 135,000, Elmbridge will provide you with an exciting and challenging step in your career.
The borough maintains heavy demands for development and equally strong pressure to protect the local environment. It covers extensive high-quality residential areas, large areas of Green Belt, an important stretch of the Thames and several conservation areas and listed buildings. All of which makes this an interesting place to be a planner and it is easily accessed from London.
- Flexibility: We know you have to juggle work and life commitments and we are happy and open to discussing the right mix for you whether its compressed hours or working from home.
- Wellbeing: When you thrive Elmbridge thrives, which is why we have developed a strong and varied wellbeing programme for our employees.
- Learning and development: We all know learning is an ongoing journey and we will support you on that journey by creating a bespoke learning and development plan for you.
- The package: Not forgetting our excellent pension and discounts with various local businesses and free employee parking.
