Your new company

Your new company is a South East Melbourne based council which is considered one of the most forward thinking and progressive councils in Victoria. A new Chief Executive recently restructured the Planning Department and poured money and resources into making sure planners have the authority to effectively manage strategic planning projects. The results have been excellent and the council is now an employer of choice with fantastic career development opportunities.

This is an opportunity to progress your career and be given genuine responsibilities in a region with a vast number of developments in the pipeline.

What you'll need to succeed

As the successful candidate, you will be a qualified town planner (international qualifications will be considered) with suitable rights to work in Australia. You will have extensive experience either with a Victorian Council, State Government organisation or a private sector planning firm and have an excellent understanding of strategic planning.

What you'll get in return

You will earn $50 per hour (higher rates considered for more experience) and you will secure a band 7 initial contract, with the potential to progress within the organisation. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to develop your career, working with some of the leading planners in the country.
