Development Management and Conservation

Opportunities like this do not come up very often. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has an international brand with a unique reputation. Unmatched built heritage including more than 4000 listed buildings and 38 conservation areas sit alongside thriving iconic retail centres, a vibrant specialist employment market, an international medical quarter and world class cultural attractions. We are home to wealthy areas, but also to some of the most deprived wards in London.

We are seeking a qualified and experienced Conservation and Design Officer to join the Development Management and Conservation Team to cover one year’s maternity leave. The role will include providing expert advice to the development management team, as well as handling a caseload of listed building consent applications.

You should be able to demonstrate sound judgement, have a flexible approach to problem solving and be capable of dealing with a wide variety of situations working within a team as part of a larger department. You must have a relevant qualification, although those looking to graduate in 2017 will be considered, excellent communication and negotiation skills, as well as being enthusiastic and committed, IHBC membership is desirable.

This is an ideal opportunity to experience the fast-paced work of a London borough within an experienced and supportive team. Flexible working and the opportunity to work from home are included as part of RBKC’s commitment to work life balance.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Beverley Kuchar, Head of Development Management and Conservation on Tel: 020 7745 6730 or Email:

Closing Date: 26th June 2017
