Strategic planning officer

Work for an organisation tasked with Planning London's future. Strategic Town Planner - £23ph to £27ph.

Your new company

Overseeing the strategic administration for Greater London you will be working as part of a Planning Service designed to oversee Major Planning Applications across the 32 London Boroughs and the City of London Corporation.

Your new role

You will work as part of a Development Management team on pre applications as well as referred schemes. These will consist of 100 Unit plus sites, projects over 10 stories in height not within the City of London boundary and anything built on green belt or metropolitan open space.

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to work quickly and efficiently as decisions and comments need to be made promptly. You will therefore need a good understanding of the London planning system and have worked on larger schemes for a relevant metropolitan authority ideally within London itself. A recognised RTPI qualification is an added benefit and having worked at an officer level within a local authority is a necessity. You will need to be able to delegate and work well as part of a team and reports will need to be accurate and delivered professionally.

What you'll get in return

A long term contract, with a likelihood of an extension, as well as a competitive rate of pay. You will be mainly remote, with the option to go into office when you want, although you may well have to attend occasional meetings in Central London. This is a great opportunity to work on the biggest and best schemes across the capital and really have input into the way London is shaped in the future.
