We pride ourselves on our open and friendly culture and offer a professional, positive and stable working environment.

We’re a busy and dynamic local authority employing more than 500 people. We are passionate about local democracy and work closely with our 43 councillors to support and make a real difference to our local communities and businesses.

We are committed to providing equality of opportunities for all and believe that employing people from different backgrounds, with a range of perspectives and experiences, helps us to deliver high quality services to residents.

We are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer who positively encourages applications from disabled people. If, as a disabled person, you meet the minimum criteria for a job then you will be guaranteed an interview, and we will ensure any reasonable adjustments are made to the interview process so that you can be fairly assessed for the vacancy.

Our organisation’s values are reflected in the way we work, both with our communities and internally;

  • Kindness
  • Collaboration
  • Accountability
  • Equity, Diversity and Inclusion 
  • Authenticity
  • Pride
