We have set out to make our workplaces vibrant and happy places to be, places where our people feel safe, content and valued.
We are committed to flexible working and achieving a good work-life balance with a mix of office and homeworking available. During this unprecedented time, we have ensured that our staff have the right tools and support to work remotely and have access to offices when necessary.

You will have an understanding of local government and the environment in which it operates, and the ability and confidence to work strategically. You will also need to be a dynamic and highly motivated individual who can work effectively with managers at all levels with the confidence to present and provide advice to senior managers and other stakeholders.
