Planning Services

Welcome

Welcome to Hammersmith & Fulham and thanks for your interest in working with us.

As well as being based in central London, H&F offers career opportunities that are difficult to find elsewhere. It’s a busy borough with one of the highest-performing planning departments. We’re currently dealing with some of the country’s biggest developers and regeneration sites, but we’re small enough to have a genuinely personal relationship with many of the residents we serve.

Our councillors have big plans for growth and development in the borough, particularly in providing more genuinely affordable housing and in making it a great place for business to thrive. As a planner, you’ll be involved on a daily basis in projects that affect the quality of our residents’ lives, so it’s critical you are committed to getting the best out of every scheme.

Our aim is to be the best council. To do this we need the best staff. So, our standards are high. If you’re looking to develop your career in a fast-paced, highly professional environment, then I really do look forward to hearing from you.

Chief Planning Officer


Welcome

The council

About us

Talk to anyone within the council and they’ll tell you the same thing – our people love it here. There is an overwhelming feeling of pride, because big things happen here, and the team know about our even bigger ambitions for the future.

There is a positive and innovative culture that has been cultivated throughout the council. This is a culture in which our managers take a hands-on, involved approach with their teams. Our ethos is to work as a team, achieve as a team and take responsibility as a team; there is no blame culture here.

We also place a great deal of value on a constructive, collaborative approach to our employees’ development. This is done through internal and external training, regular one-to-one meetings and appraisals. We are keen to develop our staff for the long term and promote from within wherever possible.

Our recent restructure has created a range of new opportunities across the Planning service – making it an ideal time to join us. Our new career graded planning roles provide the chance to grow and develop in your role, progressing your career on some of the most exciting projects in London.

We’re based in brand new offices in Central Hammersmith in the heart of a vibrant west London. Mobile technology and modern spaces have transformed the way we work collaboratively and flexibly. Our offices are within 5 minutes’ walk from Hammersmith tube station, a stone’s throw away from the many shops, cafes, bars and nationally renowned entertainment venues including the Apollo and Lyric Theatre.
