About Our Client

The Planning Inspectorate has a long and proud history in ensuring a fair planning system for England and Wales. The work they do has a significant impact on people's lives, the communities where they live and the economy; whether that is considering an appeal for housing, supporting Local Authorities to develop sound Local Plans or examining applications and providing recommendations to the Secretary of State for major infrastructure projects such as power stations, airport expansions or major roads.

It's a really exciting time to be thinking about joining. They have invested in a multi-million-pound improvement programme to create a more modern Inspectorate. They want their colleagues to be able to work more flexibly and more collaboratively, exploring new and innovative ways to improve the way they provide services. They are continuing to invest in technology and, as well as developing their model to be more customer centric, they have been modernising their processes to introduce increased automation and efficiency.

They have several projects underway and planned, all of which require experienced, proactive and engaging business analysts to deliver new and updated processes and systems over the next two years in line with The Planning Inspectorate's strategic direction and goals. They are implementing and embedding Agile processes across their projects and envisage the majority of projects will use this approach.
