What does it take to be a planner at Elmbridge?

Commitment? Determination?  Pragmatism?  Solution-focussed attitude?

We would suggest that it takes all of this and one other trait; we want our planners to be passionate about design.

That’s what makes planning services at Elmbridge different; we have talented, passionate people, determined to do their best work for Elmbridge, influencing and helping to shape Elmbridge.

If you want to be a planner and you have the motivation to undertake professional qualifications, we will support you in a day release course at University.

Whether you are a planning manager, officer or trainee you will understand that you have an important role to play in helping us to shape Elmbridge. You will be supporting our customers and helping them to understand the role good planning makes in shaping an area.

Elmbridge is one of the busiest local planning authorities in the country and sets very high standards for the delivery of planning decisions within Government targets.  With land values that rival London and a population of 135,000, we will provide you with an interesting and challenging step in your career.

 

About us

  • Learning and development:

    • You will meet people in the team who have completed Masters, been promoted within the team and have taken on other professional qualifications.

 

  • Flexibility:
    • And we really mean it! We know you must juggle work and life commitments and we will discuss 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, from mindfulness to lunchtime table tennis – the options are there for you.

 

  • The package:
