Harlow is entering a new era of growth and we require a new Principal Planning Officer to join our award winning Planning Service.
The district and surrounding area is undergoing significant new development and regeneration as part of its transformation into a Garden Town. Large scale housing schemes are coming forward and investment is being attracted to the town centre and our Enterprise Zones, with key organisations such as Public Health England choosing to make Harlow their home.
Working alongside two other Principals, you will focus primarily on a complex caseload within the district or deputise for the Development Manager to provide guidance and support to other members of staff and assist with corporate matters.
This position is suitable for a qualified and experienced town planner looking to take the first step into team management, gain a greater understanding of corporate matters, and engage with significant and meaningful large scale projects.
Benefits of the post include 32 days holiday, local government pension scheme and flexible working hours. Harlow is an ideal location to both live and work and is only thirty minutes from London and Stansted Airport.
If you feel you have the qualities and expertise and want to help us make Harlow a place where people want to live, learn, work and visit, please apply.
