Are you competent in the use of GIS, records management and other ICT systems?

Do you have significant experience of a Planning related technical or administrative role in a Local Planning Authority or equivalent public body, involving validation, data processing and records management?

Do you enjoy coordinating a fast-paced team-based process with due regard for deadlines, accuracy, and performance targets?

Would you like to share your expertise and interest in providing a front-line high quality customer service to planning authorities and other customers across England, Scotland and Wales?

If you would like to work for one of Britain’s major statutory consultees, as part of a small and friendly team, this could be the job for you. The Planning team at the Coal Authority provide advice to around 180 local planning authorities across England, Scotland and Wales, so helping to ensure that the risks associated with historical coal mining are taken into account when new development is proposed. In turn this helps to ensure the stability of property and public safety.

We receive over 9,000 planning consultations each year. You will lead the registration team in registering such consultations on our bespoke records management system, and ensuring that the boundaries of site-based consultations are carefully recorded for GIS purposes. The work needs to be completed accurately and at pace, with strict adherence to approved procedure and compliance with external deadlines. As Registration Process Coordinator, you will play the essential lead role in these processes, while coordinating and advising the dedicated registration personnel who support this function. You will also be the first point of contact for a significant number of related telephone and email enquiries and in providing the highest standards of service to such customers. While you will be expected to answer general enquiries yourself, you will also need to effectively disseminate others concerning specific cases to the team’s chartered planners, as appropriate. You will also assist the Planning team’s managers in performance analysis, review and continuous improvement.
