Interested in shaping one of the fastest growing towns in the Midlands? 

Rugby is one of the fastest growing towns in the country and is set to grow by 30% by 2035.  We need an exceptional and dynamic planner to lead our growth agenda.

Located in the county of Warwickshire, near the cities of Coventry and Leicester, with direct rail links to London and Birmingham and within “the golden triangle” of the strategic road network, Rugby’s accessibility is one of the key attributes making it a great place to live and work.

This is an exciting opportunity to play a key part in the growth of Rugby Borough with large developments in two sustainable urban extensions, high quality employment and technology sites such as Ansty Park and the exciting regeneration of Rugby Town Centre. There is also plenty of diversity in the workload not only through the major schemes that you will be dealing with but the other key features of our Borough including the rolling Warwickshire countryside much of which is Green Belt and significant heritage and cultural work preserving the birthplace of the game of Rugby.

You will need to have a relevant degree or equivalent qualification, significant experience of development management and possess excellent communication, and advisory skills. You will also be required to supervise, manage and appraise other team members.  A driving license and access to a car for business use is essential.

Our offices are located in Rugby Town Centre and there is also the opportunity to work from home for some of the time during the working week.  For an informal discussion or further information about the role, please call / email Richard Holt our Development and Enforcement Manager on 01788 533687 /
