Build your legacy at Basildon
Here at Basildon Council, we create opportunities to improve lives every single day. We look after around 172,000 people, all living and working across our towns, and Borough. It’s our job to make sure they thrive. We do that by being ambitious and dynamic with our approach to service, and overcoming challenges with creative solutions. We work in this way across the whole council, making it a place where your career can thrive too.
As the Planning Strategy and Implementation Manager, you’ll lead the preparation, review and delivery of development plans. Working with Head of Service and their team, you’ll implement those plans according to council policies and guidelines. You’ll seek opportunities for external funding and carry out negotiations with developers – always maintaining a strong focus on policy and finances.
We’re looking for someone that has experience in policy planning in a local government setting. Your creativity in managing projects with financial and resource limitations will also help you thrive in this role. Confidence in Microsoft programs (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and project management software will be crucial. And, you’ll need to be willing to travel to sites throughout the borough.
We’re accessible to London and other parts of Essex, thanks to our great car and rail connections. We offer competitive holidays, which increase with your length of service, and a pension scheme. You can also get childcare vouchers, discounted rates for health, fitness and local stores – and free parking!
