Mid Sussex is a dynamic and forward-thinking local authority based in the heart of beautiful Sussex. Our priorities are clear and focused, and our services are rated highly by the local community of Mid Sussex.

Planning and Building Control are two busy, key services within the Council, and the role of our Service Support Team is to deliver a high-quality support service for these two teams, working closely with our professional Planning and Building Control Officers.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and positive individual to join our high performing yet friendly support team. This part-time role (30 hpw) is well suited to someone that has an interest in Planning and Building Control, a keen eye for detail, competent IT skills, and experience in an administration role.

The position also requires someone with a helpful, professional telephone manner assisting applicants and the public with a variety of queries, plus the ability to handle incoming application payments.

This is a demanding and interesting role that will require the full commitment of the successful applicant. There will also be some capacity to work from home following the completion of a successful period of training in all duties outlined in the job description.

If you are looking for a new challenge serving the local community, and consider yourself a strong team player, then this could be the role for you.

We offer free staff parking, subsidised gym membership for you and your family, mutually agreeable flexible working arrangements and both a generous pension scheme and annual leave entitlement.
