Cambridge is a diverse city with a wide range of people living and working in our communities. Proud of that diversity we are keen to reflect it in our workforce. Welcoming applications from all sections of the community, Cambridge City Council values having a workforce that represents the city we serve.
With a commitment to a policy of equality of opportunity in employment, we only recruit people because their abilities and merits are most suitable for the requirements of the job. Therefore, we aim to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
We have a clear vision for leading a united city: ‘One Cambridge, fair for all’. We want everyone to share in the city’s prosperity and to see Cambridge as a great place to live, learn and work. We also want Cambridge to be a sustainable city that is focused on reducing its carbon footprint and tackling climate change.
With a strong track record of delivering high-quality services we support our staff with learning and development opportunities from the day they join the council. We also offer a range of flexible working options, including flexible hours, home and mobile working, dependent on the role.
We value openness and transparency. We believe it is important to be accountable to our residents and to involve them when we are making decisions.
We are an ambitious and forward-thinking council, and we recognise that we must continue to evolve and innovate to meet the city’s needs. This means it is important to make continuous improvements in the way we deliver our services.
If these are the things that also matter to you, we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for talented people who can work in a flexible and agile way – people who are ready and willing to help us tackle the challenges we face. We want people who share our values and are inspired by wanting to make a difference to our communities.
If you are one of those people, we hope you will consider joining us – with your help we can really make a difference to our city and its residents, businesses and visitors.
