Outstanding opportunities for career minded Planners to join our Development Management teams. Due to growth in application numbers and development pressures we require both experienced and newly/ part qualified Planning professionals to deliver high quality Development Management services for our customers. If you are looking for a variety of caseload challenges ranging from major windfarms to Conservation Areas, rural development and town centre regeneration, then this could be the perfect place for your next step. These are vibrant times in the beautiful South of Scotland. The Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal, UK Government Levelling Up Funds, South of Scotland Enterprise, and Scottish Government Regeneration and Affordable Housing Funds are attracting significant investment and interest to our region. To ensure that our Planning team plays its part in supporting sustainable growth and our rich natural and built environment we have restructured our Development Management service and created several new posts. We offer hybrid working arrangements with opportunities for remote and home working and can accommodate part- or full-time hours up to 36 hours per week.
