Principal Planning Officer
Birmingham is a brilliantly diverse, young and creative city.
It is the most entrepreneurial city outside of London, with the population set to grow by 150,000 by 2031. Birmingham is developing at pace, and so are we.
The Council’s Planning and Development team is already involved in major growth projects, committed to an ambitious 15-year growth strategy.
When you join us, you’ll work on some of the biggest and most exciting projects the city has ever seen. Think High Speed 2, Curzon, Commonwealth Games 2022, Birmingham Smithfield and many more. We’re developing 51,000 new homes and 1.5 million square metres of commercial, leisure and retail space. In all, £4bn infrastructure investment is planned. And the scale of projects is matched by the diversity.
We’re united by our goal of making a real difference to our community, and we have the resources and capability to make it happen.
Creating great things for Birmingham starts with creating great roles for talented people. And we’re now hiring. So if you’re a skilled, ambitious planner, we’d love to hear from you.
You’ll manage a diverse portfolio of planning applications and appeals including major development schemes, and be responsible for supporting Senior Planning Officers. As for you, you’ll have a degree in planning or a related discipline, be a Corporate Member of the RTPI and have substantial experience in Planning Management. And you’ll be passionate about quality, and real transformation.
