They will have a thorough understanding of the purpose and function of Planning, a sound knowledge of Planning Legislation and a thorough knowledge of Development Management Legislation.

Planner - Grade 7 - £32,234 - £34,728

Candidates should hold a qualification recognised by the Royal Town Planning Institute or equivalent plus some experience of Town and Country Planning gained in a local authority and/or private practice.

  • Currently we are all working from home and this is to continue with occasional visits to one of the office buildings. We are now carrying out site visits where considered essential.
  • Flexible working
  • Generous holiday scheme
  • Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Reimbursement for fuel for site visits etc
  • Workplace Options - employee assistance programme, for information and guidance on any problems
  • Well-being events and sports sessions

This client has some really interesting and unique work, which I will be happy to discuss in more details on email or over the phone.

Pay rates during the hourly paid contract period will be £25-£33/h for a Planning Officer and £34-£38/h for a Senior Planner.

One of the advantages of starting as a contractor is time; they client is hoping to interview and appoint in April, although this should discourage those with a longer notice period, as finding the right person is more important than how quickly the person can start.

To apply, or for more information, please call Daniel Baker on 01489 898 975 or apply via this advert.
