We’re Hiring!

We’re recruiting five Assistant Planners to work with us in the Edinburgh planning service.

Edinburgh is Scotland’s busiest planning authority, handling over 3,000 applications a year in a city with internationally-valued built and natural heritage. We have ambitious plans to realise Edinburgh’s vision of a fair, welcoming, pioneering and thriving city.

So, if you’re looking for an opportunity to get involved in a range of planning projects and processes, develop your knowledge and skills, and of course, work with a great bunch of people, then you can apply here. The closing date is 24 February 2022.

As an Assistant Planning Officer, you will be responsible for handling a varied and challenging range and volume of planning and enforcement cases and for contributing to projects and change within the service.

As part of our agile, multidisciplinary workforce you will gain skills enabling you to work in different teams and operational areas in the Planning service. The advertised posts are based in our fast-paced, high-volume teams dealing with:

  • Householder developments
  • Enforcement
  • Smaller-scale local developments and listed buildings.

In this short video some of the team share what it’s like to work here:

In an earlier post from 2019, one of our previous assistant planners blogged about their experience of the job and how it helped them to achieve chartered membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute.
