Senior Planning Officer

Enthusiastic, highly motivated with proven planning experience………

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join us as a Senior Planner, where you can shape your own future career whilst making a real & lasting impact to the Sevenoaks District.

This is a varied and rewarding role where you will work across all sections of the Planning department to contribute to the delivery of the service. You will engage with developers and other key stakeholders, enabling quality developments whilst maintaining the character of the District. You will have a post graduate qualification in Town Planning, have full membership of the RTPI (or working towards this) and a full driving licence with a vehicle available for work purposes.

Other members of the team will look to you for inspiration and guidance in the processing of planning applications and appeals and therefore mentoring skills are essential. By joining the team you will actively seek to add value, and in return, you will be given every opportunity to develop and progress your career.

Why Sevenoaks?

We have world class tourist attractions and are within two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet we are just half an hour from central London by train with good links to the A21, M25 and M20. Our Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination this year so what better time to join us when we are looking towards growth and development for our District.

Feel free to contact us to have a chat about the role, and find out more about who we are and the work we’ve been doing over the last year. Call Alison Salter on 01732 227337 or Aaron Hill on 01732 227494.
