About the role

Are you passionate about delivering change that has a long-lasting, positive impact on people’s lives and where they live? This is an exciting opportunity to join a service that has a direct influence on the transport design of new developments around Brighton & Hove.

We are one of the busiest unitary Highway Authorities outside London and this role will be central to ensuring that the transport aspects of minor development projects within the city are well designed and managed. You will be the voice of the Highway Authority in it’s role as statutory consultee to planning applications.

Join us in Brighton and Hove – a unique, energetic, diverse centre for culture in the South East and an exciting place to develop your career.

It’s for good reason that the City of Brighton & Hove has been named as one of the happiest places in the UK. With its stunning location between the sea and the South Downs National Park, excellent connections to the capital, vibrant culture, rich heritage, and diverse communities, there’s something for everyone. Working for Brighton & Hove City Council means that you’re able to play your part in making the city a fantastic place to live, work and visit.

The city places emphasis on high-quality, forward-thinking, sustainable development and travel solutions. As a council we are committed to creating a more liveable city in which residents and visitors feel healthier, safer, more socially connected and included.

As Transport Planning Officer you will ensure the traffic impacts of planning proposals and new development in the city are well managed, minimise any detrimental effects on the transport network and environment, and meet the diverse needs of our community. The role is also vital for improving perceptions of the city as a destination for investment and provides a rare opportunity to influence how development in the city is led.

As the successful candidate you will have a good knowledge of transport planning and a keen focus on compliance with policy. You will also have a strong customer ethos and excellent communication skills.

You will be based in our modern, open plan offices in Hove Town Hall and benefit from flexible working, including home-working. Joining an enthusiastic and supportive team, you will collaborate with colleagues from a range of fields, working closely with the Planning service and Transport Project teams to deliver transport changes across the city.

This role is part of a newly expanded team that will respond flexibly and efficiently to the growing development demands of the city. As such, you may be interested in the other team roles being advertised alongside this post currently.

We offer great terms and conditions including the Local Government Pension Scheme, excellent training and development, generous annual leave and staff discounts.
