Planning Officer

  St Helens, Tasmania

If you don’t come from Break O’Day you wouldn’t know that we have a naturally beautiful environment that speaks to our heart.  We are creating a diverse and thriving community; a place of opportunity. A place where everyone feels safe, welcome and connected.  If you want to help us enhance this, we are looking for suitably qualified and experienced people to join the BODC team.


Sound land use planning is integral to the realisation of Break O’Day’s vision.  The role involves statutory planning work with some exciting new developments on the horizon that provide a mix of residential, commercial and rural development applications.  As well as assessing applications you will be out and about inspecting land and developments in iconic locations such as the Bay of Fires and the world renowned Blue Tier.  Did we mention the mountain bike tracks?  St Helens is soon to become the epicentre of a fantastic mountain bike experience.  If you’re looking for a full scope, integrated planning role in a great team, this is the place to be.  Communication, a customer service focus, diplomacy, and integration with economic development activities and environmental sustainability are key requirements for role success.
