“It’s in the organisation’s interest to develop its staff – and to create a positive working environment with a motivated and empowered workforce. It’s also a major contribution to the health and wellbeing of individuals” Dr Virginia Pearson- Chief Officer

In the planning team, we are split into two main functions; the strategic planning team and the planning development management team.

We are responsible for ensuring that future development of the county is managed in a way that allows for social, economic and environmental needs. The work we do makes a real difference to future developments and how the environment will look.

There is a huge variety in the work that we do, and you could find yourself managing and developing a range of plans including waste plans, local plans, school placement planning, coordinating input into major proposals and working with partners to prioritise and secure funding for new investments.

In return for your hard work, we can offer you clear development routes within the team. From apprenticeship opportunities and graduate entry roles up through to senior planning officers. You will also be rewarded with flexible working, a generous leave allowance and an excellent pension.
