Type of offer:

Friends of the Earth is a leading environmental NGO, concerned with the protection of the environment. It is the largest grassroots environmental campaigning community in the country, and one of the oldest and largest worldwide. We are in the midst of a climate crisis, and the natural world around us is in decline.  

We are looking for Senior Planner to lead our land use planning team. As Senior Planner you will ensure Friends of the Earth has access to high quality land use planning advice and services in support of our aims and objectives. 

This role requires a fully qualified Town Planner with demonstrable experience in town and country planning, infrastructure planning, inquiries and hearings. You will also need excellent knowledge of current planning policy and debates, and a passion for supporting communities in their right to participate in the decisions which affect their local environment.  

If you are prepared to get stuck into fighting proposals for environmentally damaging major infrastructure, polluting industries and dirty energy developments – and defending community rights to participation in planning decisions- apply now! 

Closing date: Sunday 11th April 2021 (23:59) 

Interviews: w/c 19th April 2021
