Sounds exciting! So what's in it for me?
As well as the opportunity to work on these world class development projects, we also have a fantastic range of staff benefits on offer...
We're also great at career development - see how Laura went from being our Trainee Planner to our Corporate Director!
I joined Luton Council back in 1988 as a trainee planner, and with the support of those around me I was able to get a Planning postgraduate qualification. My focus in this team was on the environment, conservation, heritage, and the town centre. Having progressed to a principal planning officer, I was then seconded to the Economic Development team to work on regeneration. So there’s always been fantastic encouragement to move around the council and learn new things.
Following my secondment, I took on a business development role in the new Regeneration Service, working with business and EU funding. After a brilliant, busy time as the Interim Head of Regeneration and then Head of Business and Consumer Services, l became the Interim Corporate Director - which turned into a permanent role.
It’s fair to say that I’ve enjoyed some great opportunities to build and progress my career here. As a borough without boundaries, Luton’s a remarkable place to grow your skills and experience like never before.
