City of Seaside – Assistant/Associate Planner

The City of Seaside invites your application for Assistant and Associate Planner.

Come join the City of Seaside’s Planning department, where their mission is to “provide comprehensive planning services to create a balanced and sustainable city that contributes to a high quality of life for our diverse community”. Enter into a team that works hard to support each other, collaboratively shaping the culture of their department and the community. The selected candidates will be able to make these roles their own, seeing the impacts of their work in the community while gaining exposure to skills and projects from various disciplines. This position is an excellent opportunity for any candidate looking to get exposure to all planning areas instead of being siloed into one specialty (as often happens when employed in a larger agency).

The ideal candidate for both roles will have an inquisitive nature and demonstrates an interest and ability to work in all areas of the planning department. Candidates will have excellent customer service skills and an eagerness to serve and support the community through their work and public forums. The ideal candidates will be self-starters and proactive in their approach to solving problems and enjoy working as part of a collaborative, supportive team environment. Experience in the Public Sector is ideal; however, strong skills with an understanding of the intricacies of public sector development will also be accepted.
