Could you help shape Woking’s future?

Located in the heart of Surrey yet within 30 minutes of Waterloo station, Woking is one of the leading towns in Surrey.

The Council’s forward thinking attitude and pioneering approach to building sustainable communities makes the business of planning both exciting and challenging. Significant growth is planned with an emphasis on ambitious town centre regeneration to compliment recently delivered improvements. By contrast 60% of the borough is designated as Green Belt and forms the backdrop to a number of villages which retain much of their historic character.

With its combination of attractive green spaces, excellent transport links and a thriving business community, Woking is a quality place to live and work.

You will play a part in planning for the delivery of high quality new development which respects and contributes to the diverse character and heritage of this dynamic borough.

We are looking for self-motivated individuals with a positive outlook, excellent communication skills and a commitment to customer focused services. It is also a requirement for this role that applicants hold a valid full UK Driving License.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic in the UK, working from home is currently being encouraged.

The Council offers in return a generous flexi time scheme with the ability to take two flexi days a month, membership of the local government pension scheme, discounted health and leisure membership, plus many more excellent benefits.

For an informal chat about the role, please contact Dan Freeland (Development Team Leader) on 01483 743 456.

Interviews will take place W/C 22nd June 2020. Given current social distancing measures in the UK, there may be an option to hold interviews virtually. This will be confirmed nearer the time.
