We have an exciting opportunity for a town planner looking to develop or expand their development management experience and work in a specialist area where there will be a range of planning applications and proposals to deal with.

Based in the historic city of Cambridge, and working across the diverse county of Cambridgeshire, you will join a friendly, busy and growing team which is expanding with new posts to rise to the challenge of delivering an ambitious and wide ranging growth agenda. This includes the Greater Cambridge Partnership, which is a multi-million pound programme to deliver vital infrastructure and thousands of new homes and jobs; ongoing improvements of the A14; and planned development for existing and new settlements.

You will be an enthusiastic, proactive town planner, with a planning or related degree, and with experience already in development management. Ideally you should have a strong work ethic, and either already be MRTPI accredited or in your final stages of working towards achieving the MRTPI standard.

You will be responsible for a range of planning applications so will have good organisational, time management skills, and an eye for detail.

In a rapidly growing area with major new development planned including new settlements, you will deal with planning applications made by the County Council for its own development. This will include proposals for new infrastructure such as new schools. You will also be dealing with planning applications for mineral and waste management development (training will be given).

Cambridgeshire County Council offers a wide range of benefits including flexible, compressed and home working arrangements, and applications for job share, return to work, and part time working will all be welcomed. There is a generous annual leave entitlement, as well as membership of the Local Government Pension scheme.

This post is ideal for an existing development management planner to build upon their experience within a county role, so come and join us, and also have an attractive location in which to live and work.

Applications should be submitted by midday on 4 September 2017. Interviews will be held on the 13th and 14th of September 2017.

If you would like to discuss these posts or know more about the new roles please telephone Jane Stanley on 01223 743812 or Emma Fitch on 01223 715531.
