On 1 April 2019, we will become East Suffolk Council – a new ‘super district’ authority, replacing Suffolk Coastal and Waveney. It will be the largest district council in the country, providing high quality services to a quarter of a million people across east Suffolk. Our councils are an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to those who need them most.
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Team Leader to join our busy Property Information and Planning Services Support Team. The team is responsible for the handling of all Planning and Building Control applications, Solicitor Searches, Land Charge requests to ensure submissions are registered onto the appropriate software system in accordance with agreed targets, and provide guidance and advice as required.
As a team leader you will be responsible for the day to day line management of the team to ensure the teams deliver high quality and efficient support to Planning Services Teams, and that workloads are managed effectively. You will be used to working with and improving office processes, as well as being experienced in the application and use of office computerised systems. A working knowledge of planning or building control functions will be advantageous, but is not essential.
We’re looking for someone who is highly motivated, organised and flexible enough to work to changing priorities. Good numerical skills, computer literacy and attention to detail are essential, as is the ability to challenge and continually improve.
In return for this, we can offer great opportunities for training and development. We want you to stay with us for the long-term, so we’ll give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There’s also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose built brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.
