Job Description

Public Sector People are currently working with a council located in the Outer West suburbs of Melbourne. This council are seeking a Band 5 planner to come aboard their Major Development team until November 2019.
Council are also offering flexibility around hours worked each week, so could be suitable for planners who are still studying but have already completed a student placement. Ideally, you will have experience managing basic applications, Condition 1 reports, secondary consents and extensions of time.
This is a council experiencing substantial growth and you will gain exposure to a niche area of planning separate to plain statutory planning. The Major Developments team deal with planning proposals within Council's growth areas.  Future use/development are controlled by Precinct Structure Plans and Development Contribution Plans, so this is a project management approach to planning.
Requirements Include:
  • Tertiary qualification in Town Planning, Urban Studies, Environmental Planning or related discipline.
  • Victorian Statutory Planning experience is essential to the success of applications received.
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbally and written.
  • Growth area experience is highly desirable, but not essential.
Benefits Include:
  • Benefit from a supportive and collaborative culture within Local Government.
  • Gain growth area experience in a metro council for your CV.
  • Attractive hourly rate and long term contract position. 
For a confidential discussion regarding this position and other opportunities within Metropolitan and Regional Victoria, please contact Emma Murphy at PSP on (03) 8535 3111.
