If you have three or more years’ experience working in Planning Policy and are a motivated self-starter looking for a new challenge, we’d like to hear from you. Broxbourne Council’s current Local Plan has generated many exciting development projects across the Borough but is now coming up for five-year-old and is due for a review. Now is the perfect time to join the team and expand your experience as a key player in updating the Local Plan. 

Broxbourne is located on the northern edge of London and is only 30 minutes from Liverpool Street Station by train. The Lee Valley Regional Park and high-quality Green Belt together with intense pressure for development means that the challenge of finding suitable locations for growth is considerable. 

You will be part of a small, successful team that includes a S106 specialist and will work creatively on progression of a new Community Infrastructure Levy and on infrastructure projects funded by S106 funding flowing into the borough from recent developments.  

The successful candidate will be able to represent the Council and communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders, will be able to draft reports and explain a range of complex planning policy matters. Suitable planning degree/qualifications as well as familiarity with the National Planning Policy Framework are essential as is a full driving license.
The ability to converse at ease with members of the public and provide advice in fluent English is essential in this post.

We have adopted the core values of Teamwork, Innovation, Effectiveness and Respect (TIER). 
The values and their underlying behaviours, demonstrate our commitment to providing excellent customer care, working in a joined up way, showing respect at all times and looking at innovation and forward thinking solutions. We pride ourselves on recruiting, developing and retaining talent who share this commitment.

We are committed to safer recruitment, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
The Council’s benefits package includes generous leave entitlement, a full training and development programme, membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and free membership to the Council’s local leisure centres, which includes free access to gyms, swimming pools, fitness classes, racket sport sessions, a health suite and a range of generous discounts across other leisure and culture services.

Broxbourne Council is an Equal Opportunities employer.

Details and application forms for all job vacancies are listed on the Council’s website.
