Knowsley’s growth agenda is delivering a record number of homes, regenerated town centres, jobs, and quality places. To maintain this growth, Knowsley Council is seeking to appoint a Senior Planner (Policy) in the Planning Policy team.

This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated team player to join a friendly team as a Senior Planner (Policy), taking a lead on key policy areas, assisting wider teamwork, and managing consultants as we review our Local Plan and contribute to other Council initiatives.

Applicants must have experience of working within planning (policy, DM or regeneration) in the public, private or third sector, and have a degree or equivalent qualification in planning or a related subject.

Benefits include a generous Local Government Pension with employer contributions, substantial leave (25 to 31 days, plus 2 extra days and Bank Holidays), flexi-leave (up to 26 days a year) and optional flexible working patterns.  The team is currently home working and is not likely to return to the office full-time.

The team’s highly accessible offices are in Huyton village, six miles from Liverpool, on cycling and bus routes, 5 minutes drive from the M62 motorway and next door to Huyton railway station (with direct services to Liverpool, Manchester, Wigan, Preston, Blackpool, Warrington, and Crewe).

For an informal discussion please contact Kevin Foster at 07384 900785 or Gerard Woods at 07824 372221

Closing Date: Monday 13 September 2021 @ 11.55pm
