Are you interested in working in a great place, with great people?  Then look no further.  

We are looking for a Planning Officer within the Strategic Planning team who can assist in the preparation of the Local Plan and other planning policy documents, projects, and strategies.  The successful candidate will assist in preparing the evidence base for the Local Plan and will also prepare planning briefs where necessary.  The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate excellent communication skills, an ability to work effectively to deadlines and must be committed to providing high quality customer service.  Previous experience of working in a planning environment would be desirable, but the post is also suitable for a recent graduate who is self-motivated and keen to develop their career further.

With a new Local Plan in preparation, a regeneration agenda supported by substantial investment and the chance to deal with exciting and varied development proposals, West Lancashire is the ideal place for you to develop and advance your planning career.  We sit in a unique geographical location, within easy reach of the Liverpool and Manchester conurbations, with a mix of vibrant towns and villages sitting alongside tranquil countryside, making West Lancashire an attractive place to live, work and visit.  

We want to hear from planners who are enthusiastic about the opportunity to work in our Development Management and Strategic Planning teams.  If you bring us dedication and commitment and enjoy working as part of a team, we can in return offer a range of opportunities to suit you within a supportive working environment and with a strong commitment to ongoing career development.

Successful candidates can choose to mainly work from home, but will need to carry out regular site visits within the Borough and work in our Ormskirk office for at least one day per week, or more if they prefer.   We pride ourselves on our friendliness and being a good employer with a range of benefits and employment terms and conditions to suit you.  A competitive salary, generous annual leave, the opportunity for hybrid working, Local Government Pension Scheme, work life balance policies, and support for your personal development are just some of the benefits we offer.  So if you are forward-thinking, motivated and you have the skills and qualities we need then we would love to hear from you!

For an informal discussion, please contact Steve Faulkner, Planning Services Manager on 01695 585165, Kate Jones, Planning Services Team Leader on 01695 585169 or Christine Whittle, Strategic Planning Manager on 01695 583336
