Careers in the City Council

Over 1,300 staff are employed across all areas of our operations.  While most are hired directly by the Council through a competitive recruitment process, those in senior grades are recruited by the Public Appointments Service.  Our employees come from a wide range of professional backgrounds with diverse skill sets, qualifications and experience.

Staff are encouraged to expand their existing skill-sets by attending training programmes or gaining extra qualifications.   Many roles offer staff flexible working hours and where possible we try to facilitate part-time working to take into account the different circumstances of employees. 

Job vacancies are advertised on our website and information on some of the varied roles can be found below.
