East Staffordshire Borough Council serves a population of approximately 110,000 and is a mix of urban and rural areas. The principal town of Burton upon Trent is known for its brewing heritage and the smaller settlement of Uttoxeter is a market town. The rural areas are varied and characterised by small hamlets and villages, often historic in origin and containing substantial conservation areas.

A small but very effective Development Control Team handles a wide variety of applications ranging from major residential and commercial proposals to householder, agricultural and other applications. Officers will have the opportunity to experience the varied nature of applications which are reflective of the character of the Borough.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with a strong commitment to customer care to work within our Planning Support Team. You will support the processing of planning applications, appeals and other planning workload.

See person specification and job description for further information.

The ability to produce accurate quality controlled work, follow instructions and communicate clearly and concisely are key skills. Computer literacy is essential.

The role is initially for 1 year in duration.
