Team Leader Infrastructure Planning

LB Havering Infrastructure Planning Team

Do you want to be part of something new and exciting?

The London Borough of Havering is recruiting to a brand new Infrastructure Planning Team. We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated people, to fill three key posts within our Planning Department.

Over the next few years we will be embarking upon a regeneration journey that will transform our borough, connect our towns and bring opportunities for all.

Although we are the third largest borough in London, Havering is not as well-known as some of its neighbours in London and the London Thames Gateway. We are changing that.

With so much new development planned in the London Thames Gateway area to the south of the borough and in Romford Town Centre, plus a brand new Crossrail station – there is a lot to do.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of managing the funding and delivery of nearly £600m of infrastructure projects and programmes, shaping the future of the borough.

To invest in our borough, we know we also need to invest in our people. We’re looking for ambitious individuals who want to grow and develop their careers. In return, we offer great support and training to get you settled into your role, fantastic benefits and we also encourage flexible working.

Our offices are a short walk from Romford station and easily reachable by bus. We’re close to the M25 and offer discounted car parking for staff. We’re an open plan, friendly office with a great atmosphere.

Our people are as much part of our journey as the work we’re doing – together Havering is going places.

If you think you could be part of this new and exciting team, we would like to hear from you.

NB: we will soon be recruiting to a Career Grade Infrastructure Planning Officer, so please do keep an eye on our vacancy list.
