We are looking for exceptional candidates to join the team be part of the future that we are shaping.
Enfield is already a great place to live and work and has all the ingredients for future success. Our attractive historic market town boasts a prime location with great transport links into central London. We host a myriad of assets from great green spaces, cultural venues and countryside including the Lee Valley Regional Park and high performing industrial economy that is an engine room for London’s wider economy.
Enfield’s Place Department is looking to secure talented design, planning and transport professionals within its Planning and Traffic and Transportation Services to provide additional capacity to a growing team. We are committed to delivering a high quality planning, design and heritage service and to ensuring successful placemaking and regeneration across the Borough.
