The Christchurch and East Dorset Partnership are looking for a Principal Planning Lawyer to join a small but busy Legal Team.
The successful candidate will be the principal legal adviser on all Town and Country Planning and Planning Policy matters and will be required to attend and advise at Planning Committee meetings.
Experience in providing legal services in another local government discipline would be an advantage.
This role will support the Partnership Legal and Democratic Services Manager in the running of the Legal Team and will deputise in his absence.
This is a dual location position which requires the ability to travel around the borough and district and to work from both the Civic Offices, Christchurch and Wimborne as required.
As this post involves close working and giving advice to elected members of the Council, the position is politically restricted under the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.
For an informal confidential discussion about this role, please contact Richard Jones, Partnership Legal and Democratic Services Manager on 01202 795171.
NB: You will be unable to view the job description and person specification forms after this vacancy has closed. We cannot accept CV's in place of an application form as we require the same range of information from all our candidates. Please be aware that further communication will be via e-mail.
