When it’s time for the wellies to hit the ground, it makes sense to pick your destination very carefully. And you couldn’t choose a better place to develop your planning career than Wychavon and Malvern Hills District Councils.

Covering one of the most beautiful parts of the country, with thriving villages, market towns and a host of heritage attractions, we’re also a major growth area – with 28,500 homes already complete or underway, and another 14,000 planned by 2041.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to join a dynamic and ambitious shared service. You’ll put your professional skills to work on a broad and challenging canvas – for example, contributing decisively to the current review of the South Worcestershire Development Plan – and we’ll also look to you to take a genuinely leading role within our Joint Management Team. Our sustainability agenda has real momentum: we’re looking to constantly improve efficiency and design quality, while keeping use of non-renewable resources to an absolute minimum. A skilled senior manager with a full planning repertoire, you’ll also understand how to work collaboratively with elected members and external partners to deliver a prosperous, sustainable future for all.
