We need you to help shape our future

We are seeking enthusiastic and driven individuals to join our forward thinking planning department at North Norfolk District Council (NNDC). NNDC is an ambitious authority looking to deliver growth to meet the needs of its population and area and realise its development aspirations. 

Are you an experienced planner working in the public or private sector or a recent graduate planner? Are you ready for your next challenge? Do you want to work in a diverse rural district with a challenging and busy caseload? If you are then this is a real opportunity for candidates who are committed to delivering a high quality, effective, efficient and customer focused service in our forward thinking planning department.

North Norfolk District Council is committed to equality and diversity in employment and encourages applications from all sections of the community.
