Deputy Team Manager – Development Management, Open to flexible working

Islington is one of the most exciting and dynamic parts of London and is experiencing rapid growth in housing and employment. The Council has adopted ambitious planning policies to ensure that all our communities benefit from this growth whilst protecting and enhancing Islington’s unique character.

A well-resourced Development Management Service is needed to support the Council in achieving these challenges. We are therefore looking to maintain high quality service delivery by recruiting a Deputy Team Leader in the Planning Applications Team on a permanent basis. You will have knowledge of Development Management planning and a full understanding of the processes in delivering the statutory planning service in a local planning authority along with the ability to manage professional and skilled staff.

We are looking for a dynamic, positive and hardworking individual, with extensive relevant experience and expertise of fast-changing London and national planning policy, development management practices, guidance and legislation. You must be able to work creatively and constructively with the management team, applicants, the local community and other stakeholders to ensure that the council’s planning priorities are delivered. 

The post offers a friendly team environment, flexible working hours, generous annual leave and a pension scheme.
