West Lancashire Borough Council is committed to supporting the local economy and strives to provide the best environment for businesses to grow and invest. We have a diverse economy with market towns and small villages and thriving commercial areas nestled alongside rural countryside.
We are currently looking to employ self-motivated Senior Planning Officers primarily within the Development Management team to help provide professional expertise in dealing with a range of pre-application enquiries, planning applications, appeals and investigations into alleged breaches of planning control.
We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with post qualification experience who can deal with a complex caseload with limited supervision, deal positively with customers, balance priorities and work to strict deadlines. The successful candidates will be able to work from home, but will be required to carry out regular site visits within the Borough and work in our Ormskirk office for at least one day per week.
We pride ourselves on being a good employer with a range of benefits and employment terms and conditions to suit you. You will be able to benefit from competitive salaries on an incremental scheme, flexible working, LGPS pension scheme, family friendly policies and healthcare insurance.
