Senior Engineer (Highways Planning)
£30,345 - £36,096
Westminster is at the very heart of London. It contains instantly recognisable landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus as well as the capital’s internationally renowned shopping thoroughfares of Oxford, Regent and Bond Streets. Our area comprises a rich mix of vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods such as Chinatown, Soho, Covent Garden, St John’s Wood and Knightsbridge. When you add the exciting regeneration projects in the equally diverse and challenging areas around Edgware Road, Harrow Road, Queens Park Estate and Paddington, you will realise why Westminster is one of the most challenging and interesting places to work as a planner.
With 11,000 listed buildings, 55 conservation areas and constant pressures for commercial and residential development, a job with us is unique.

This is an excellent opportunity for officers with relevant qualifications and appropriate experience to develop their careers in the largest planning department in the UK.
You will be dealing with the highways and transportation aspects of a range of complex planning applications, appeals and pre application enquiries. You will need a degree or similar in a relevant subject and a minimum of 2 years development control experience.
