Senior Planning Solicitor

Can you help us to realise our ambition and potential? 

These are truly exciting times at Mid Sussex. We are continuing to build our enhanced Legal Team and are looking for an experienced Senior Planning Solicitor to join us. The work here is ambitious and complex, including the Council’s commercialisation agenda and many high-value regeneration projects and programmes. 

Key focuses of this position will include the provision of legal advice, representation and assistance across the Council to members and staff on all aspects of town and country planning law and related meetings as well as line management responsibilities.

We are a friendly and welcoming organisation, who enjoy working and learning together.  If you bring strong legal acumen as well as an enabling and collaborative approach, then we want to hear from you.  The ambition we have at Mid Sussex means you will have the opportunity to be involved in a very diverse range of activity with opportunities to develop and grow. We also offer agile working, a generous pension scheme and excellent benefits.

Finding the right job is key, but also take the time to consider the lifestyle and leisure here in beautiful Mid Sussex.

Bustling towns bursting with restaurants, eateries and coffee shops; picturesque villages full of charm and romance; and easy access to the seaside for some R+R; London for great days out and the South Downs for some of the most amazing walks.

Still need more reasons to think about finding that perfect job here in Mid Sussex? We are close to Gatwick Airport and on the trainline to London and Brighton, have superb private and state schools on your doorstep, and an abundance of National Trust gardens for that well-deserved weekend re-charge.
