Birmingham is changing….and fast! The city is booming as it sees billions of pounds of investment in major development and infrastructure projects. Are you interested in helping to shape the future of our city?

We are looking to appoint a number of graduate level planning, development, transportation, highways and built environment officers to join one of the country’s most exciting local authorities.

You will help deliver the City Council’s ambitious growth plans, which include the development of 50,000 new homes including a 5,000 dwelling sustainable urban extension; major retail, office and leisure schemes and over £5bn of infrastructure projects. There may be opportunities to work on some of the most exciting major upcoming projects in the country including High Speed Rail 2 (HS2), the expanded City Centre Enterprise Zone, and the award winning Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust.

You will be given the opportunity to gain practical work experience across a range of service areas including development, planning, housing, transportation, highways, business and skills investment. This will help you to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to develop your career and work towards membership of a relevant professional body.

We are seeking passionate individuals ranging from newly qualified graduates to people who have previously gained a professional qualification in the built environment and want to take their first step into the sector.

We will give you paid leave to complete your studies if you wish to progress to gain a professional qualification as long as you do not already hold an accredited Master’s Degree.

For informal enquiries please contact:

Joy Anibaba – Lead Officer for the Graduate Programme


We will be holding a recruitment workshop for these vacancies, please let me know if you are interested in attending the workshop.
