Your new organisation
Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is a unitary authority based in the heart of the town centre. This diverse and busy town has a great seafront, public parks and leisure activities, competitive house pricing and excellent travel links, accessible via two train lines from Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street. It offers traditional seaside living that makes it a fantastic place to live and work.

The Council delivers a wide range of vital services at the heart of the community, as well as investing in exciting and ambitious projects that keep Southend-on-Sea firmly on the map. The Council has high expectations for the future and is working with local partners and local communities to ensure we deliver our exciting ambition for the Borough.

Your new role
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Planning Policy Team at Southend as a Graduate Planner in a full-time role, initially on a 1-year fixed term basis. You will be joining a highly performing Planning Service with a strong track record of delivering high profile projects.
