Grade: PO1 (£39,951 - £42,84) – 36 hours a week

It is an exciting time to join the Planning Service at Enfield Council. Enfield holds significant potential for good growth and has an ambitious Council focussed on delivery. As a Planning Service we are energised and passionate about delivering proactive planning to help shape the Borough over the next 15 years and beyond, including helping enable the delivery of thousands of homes. We are now embarking on a new phase of regeneration and placemaking, with the Council taking a confident role in making things happen.
As we progress with our new Local Plan, a number of significant development proposals are lining up to progress through the planning process – some led by the Council, others by private developers - and we are building the capacity of our multidisciplinary team to help get the most out of these projects.
This role is a great opportunity to join an ambitious team of urban designers, architects, and conservation specialists. You will provide a range of architectural services which promote design quality, including Capacity Studies and Options Appraisals; Strategic Design and Visioning; Design Briefs; Masterplanning; Procurement Advice, Strategic Mapping, Graphics and Desktop Publishing. You will work with colleagues across the Planning, Housing and Property services, developers, agents and communities, to help deliver positive outcomes for Enfield and its surroundings.
If you are an experienced architectural professional, committed to best practice and driving excellence and can contribute positively to the work and culture of a progressive team, then we want to hear from you. We are especially seeking candidates with similar previous experience of working in both public and private sector settings with a range of stakeholders.
