These are exciting times in Neath Port Talbot. As we move towards post-Covid economic recovery, we want to ensure planning plays its part in facilitating new development, and over the next few years we will be dealing with a huge range of applications including new wind farms as Developments of National Significance (DNS), the Global Centre of Rail Excellence (GCRE) and the Afan Valley Adventure Resort. To ensure we can respond positively to the challenges ahead, we have an exciting opportunity for a new Senior Planner to join our friendly Development Management team and gain significant experience of working on these and other projects within a progressive Authority.

We are all currently working largely remotely at home due to Covid-19 and there are likely to be opportunities in future for such remote working to continue for some of the working week.

The post requires a planning qualification to Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) standard or equivalent relevant Development Management experience.

You will also need excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills, and a strong commitment to customer care. It is also essential that you have the ability to travel throughout the County Borough.
