  1. Sevenoaks is situated in West Kent, has excellent links into London and boasts historic towns and beautiful countryside with good schools and leisure facilities. It faces substantial development pressures and a key challenge for planning and conservation is to provide for new development while continuing to protect the historic and natural environment. Sevenoaks offers great opportunities to work with over 2,000 listed buildings, including Grade I listed properties like Knole Park and Chartwell.

    Sevenoaks Council is a high performing authority with an enviable track record of providing excellent services. Under the Investors in People assessment we are proud to have become the first public sector organisation in the world to be awarded Platinum status and that staff were ‘universally proud to work for the council.’ We are pleased to offer the opportunity for an Assistant Conservation Officer who has a keen interest in the historic environment to join us, working within a Conservation Team.

    The role requires an enthusiastic team player with the ability to deliver quality work efficiently and have a commitment to good customer service. You will have the opportunity to learn about the practical application of conservation philosophies within a supportive environment. Initially you will shadow the current Conservation Officers and manage a small caseload of listed building applications. The role will also include providing administrative support to the Conservation Team where required and being involved in the development of Council policy relating the historic environment.

    For an informal discussion regarding these opportunities please contact Claire Pamberi Planning Policy Team Leader or Antony Lancaster, Strategic Planning Manager on 01732 227221 or 01732 227326 by email to claire.pamberi@sevenoaks.gov.uk or antony.lancaster@sevenoaks.gov.uk

    Interview Date - 12th December 2016 (Please contact us if this date is not convenient).
