Birmingham is changing….and fast! The city is booming as it sees billions of pounds of investment in major development and infrastructure projects.

Are you interested in helping to shape the future of our city?

We are looking to appoint a number of graduate level Planning and Development Built Environment Officers to join one of the country’s most exciting local authorities.

You will help deliver the City Council’s ambitious growth plans, which include the development of 50,000 new homes including a 5,000 dwelling sustainable urban extension; major retail, office and leisure schemes and over £5bn of infrastructure projects.

There will be opportunities to work on some of the most exciting major upcoming projects in the country including High Speed Rail 2 (HS2), the expanded City Centre Enterprise Zone, and the award winning Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust.

You will be given the opportunity to gain practical work experience across a range of service areas including development, planning, housing, property, transportation, highways and business and skills investment.

This will help you to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to develop your career and work towards membership of a relevant professional body.

We are seeking passionate individuals ranging from newly qualified graduates to people who have previously gained a professional qualification in the built environment and want to take their first step into the sector.

We will give you paid leave to complete your studies if you wish to progress to gain a professional qualification as long as you do not already hold an accredited Master’s Degree.

We will be holding a workshop to offer advice and guidance on how to complete the application form.

If you would like to be invited, please email

Posts are funded by the Enterprise Zone which is an initiative of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.
