Grade                     SH5


We are looking to recruit to an exciting Planning Policy post within the Planning Policy and Conservation Team. You will be joining a small but busy team supporting the preparation of a new Local Plan and associated planning policy tasks.

This role provides the opportunity to gain further experience across all aspects of Planning Policy in a Borough that contains both urban and rural areas, including areas of Metropolitan Green Belt.  We are therefore looking for you to be enthusiastic and proactive with a level of planning experience commensurate with the role.

Benefits of working for Surrey Heath include a minimum of 24 days annual leave, a Local Government Pension Scheme, generous flexible and agile working arrangements (including up to 2 days flex a month), paid professional fees and free parking.
