Why work for us? 

Newcastle-under-Lyme is on the up!  We’ve already started our transformation, however, we still need to find better ways of doing things because we are determined to do the very best we can for our communities.   

If our vision is to be the best, then we need the best people working for us. Our people are at the heart of what we do and have the freedom to innovate, grow and develop.  We recruit people who share our vision and values; people who have the drive to deliver our ambitious Council plan.

Our historic Borough is a place of marked contrasts. We are the home of a world class University at Keele, a leading light known internationally for its research and sustainability record, which stands side by side with former mining communities including some which register amongst the most deprived areas in the country. Our Borough is also a mixture of urban centres, affected by some of the same social issues facing our neighbouring city, Stoke-on-Trent, but also outstanding rural landscapes in our less populated villages. Our plans and priorities aim to address the needs of all our communities.   

Closing date 

5pm on Friday 2 June 2023. 

Should we receive a large number of applications, then this post could close sooner than the date stated.
