Uisce Éireann has a significant multi-billion euro capital investment plan to deliver across Ireland. The Infrastructure Delivery Directorate (IDD) sees a multi-disciplinary team working on strategic infrastructure new build and upgrade projects in collaboration with the wider water industry. The Infrastructure Delivery team operates using an intelligent client delivery model, built around talented individuals who want to work on innovative and sustainable plans and solutions, using industry best practise ways of working. Our capital projects and programmes are critical to ensuring safe drinking water and proper treatment of wastewater, enabling growth and housing delivery in cities, towns and villages across the country.

The Portfolio team supports the effective management of the delivery of the IDD investment programme by ensuring governance and control through data management and systems, processes and performance reporting and analysis including the management of planning, land, wayleave, utility and statutory consents. This enables efficient delivery of the investment programme by providing programme visibility, informed risk management, analysis, challenge, and decision making. The team also provides expert support in key areas that enable the effective, efficient, and sustainable delivery of the IDD investment portfolio.

The Planning Manager, working with the relevant Programme Managers, will be responsible for ensuring such consents and permissions are in place in timely manner to mitigate against unnecessary delay and cost in delivering the Capital Investment Plan. The Planning Manager will report to the Planning, Land and Utilities Manager.

A key part of this role will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with key external stakeholders, such as the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, Local Authorities and An Bord Pleanála, regarding planning applications, planning policy and legislation. In addition ongoing engagement and coordination of activity with other planning and environmental functions within Uisce Éireann such as Asset Strategy, Environmental Strategy, Legal will be crucial
