We are looking for a confident, self-motivated individual to join our ambitious Planning Policy Team to take forward our new Local Plan. The Team has an excellent track record of delivery and this is an exciting time to join us as we work to balance the need to deliver growth against the need to protect our unique and valued environment. We have recently consulted on the strategic options for a new local plan after reviewing our evidence base and we are working with other local authorities across Surrey and London to take this forward.

You will be expected to be competent in the use of IT, have excellent research and analytical skills and be committed to delivering high quality customer service. Knowledge of the Local Plans process would also be desirable.
In return, we will reward you with excellent terms and conditions, a varied and challenging workload and a commitment to your personal development and training needs.
This contract is for up to 2 years.
