Graduate Planning Officer

Folkestone & Hythe is a dynamic and innovative place to live, work and visit. Situated on Kent’s south east coast, just under an hour away from London via the High Speed rail link, we offer a flexible working culture, corporate membership and reward schemes, Employee Assistance Programme, and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.

Our mission is to create a world class quality environment that will stand the test of time, whether relating to a household extension or one of our ambitious projects such as the proposed garden town at Otterpool Park and regeneration plans for the Town Centre, Harbour and Seafront. This is an exciting time to join the Council and we can offer you a chance to thrive, develop your qualifications and career, and make a lasting impact on our district.

You will need to be educated to degree level (or have equivalent relevant experience) and possess demonstrable knowledge of the role of Planning Policy, Development Management, and the planning system. But above all else, we are looking for a dynamic, creative, driven individual with good people skills and a passion for Planning.
