We care passionately about planning positively for the sustainable growth of South Kesteven, and we want to do the same for you and your future.

We have created a new role of Planning Trainee, initially based on our planning policy team to support the development of a new Local Plan but with the potential to also cover Development Management.  We are seeking a degree educated, enthusiastic individual with a strong interest and commitment to planning.  You should want to join our team to develop a career in planning and we will support this through a tailored training plan.

As we are experiencing growth in our District, we can offer you a varied workload with the opportunity to further your knowledge and experience. Our achievements include modernising the design of our planning service, successfully maintaining high performance and helping deliver growth within Grantham.

You will be joining us at a crucial time in the delivery of our ambitious plans for growth.  Through your personal commitment, you will help us to promote a professional, customer orientated approach towards our planning service.
