Join the planning team

The future is Slough

Now is a fantastic time for a planning professional to join Slough.

We’re looking for keen, skilled planners to take on challenging and exciting projects across our borough to support us as we grow and regenerate at a tremendous pace.

We’re currently recruiting for a variety of planning roles:

Why Slough?

Slough is a place like no other. We’re small in size but big on ambition and potential.

We’ve welcomed communities from across the world for decades and our young and dynamic population (145,000 people and still growing) enjoy living within one of the most diverse communities in the UK.

We were named the best place to work in the UK in 2017 by Glassdoor; a rating based on hiring opportunities, the cost of living and employee satisfaction.

We’re an economic success story, with more corporate headquarters in our town than the whole of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland put together.

It’s location, location, location here in Slough. With main line rail into London Paddington in just 15 minutes, easy access to the M4, M40 and M25, Heathrow on our doorstep and Crossrail coming soon.

We are currently investing more than £60million in new leisure facilities across the borough including a new leisure centre and family activity centre, completely rebuilt Ice Arena and refurbished Langley Leisure Centre.

Slough features more than 254 hectares of public park and open green space. We are proud to fly the Green Flag, which recognises and rewards high standards in management and maintenance, at Salt Hill Park, Herschel Park and Pippins Park.

We are preparing for unparalleled regeneration in Slough over the next 10 years, with more than £2.5 billion worth of development and development opportunities. Our planning service is at the heart of this activity and you will have the opportunity from day one to work on varied and stimulating projects across residential, commercial, retail, leisure and rail infrastructure sectors.

Simply put, Slough is a great place for business, living and leisure, and we think we can make things even better.
