Career Grade Planning Policy Officer
A Great Opportunity
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent's diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
This is a great opportunity for you to contribute to writing the new Local Plan for Brent. The Council as a whole recognises the importance of having a good plan to support the growth ambitions of the Borough in a sustainable way. You will work in a Spatial Planning team on research and evidence gathering, community engagement, writing policies, commenting on planning applications and doing general policy work. This career grade post will enable you to develop your skills and knowledge and take on more interesting work as you grow into the post.
You should be passionate about planning and the role it plays in place-shaping. You can be new to policy planning or have experience. You should, though, have a first level RTPI accredited planning degrees. What is most important is your commitment and interest, and your ability to work collaboratively within the team, with colleagues and the public.
