Want to kick-start your career in a great role in local government? Fancy taking on a job where every day is different and the opportunities are endless?
If you have a positive, can-do attitude, are willing to go the extra mile, believe in local democracy and are excited by new challenges, then we want to hear from you!
The title of Policy Officer may not sound terribly exciting, but looks (or in this case, job titles) can be deceiving. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for an ambitious person to take their first steps into a career in local government and you’ll be working for an organisation that will support you every step of the way.
Working as a member of the Policy team within the Strategy & Innovation Service, you will gain first hand experience of working within a busy policy environment, supporting services across the Council to take forward the authority’s key priorities and develop your experience of how the Council engages with its customers and communities.
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who wants to work in a local government environment, is keen to broaden their knowledge, and is committed to their ongoing learning and development. In return, we can offer an environment where you are empowered to use your initiative, learn from others, and given the chance to fulfil your potential.
We offer a range of employment benefits including a local government pension scheme, generous holiday entitlement, free on-site parking and discounted leisure facilities.
