Cambridge City Council

Working for the council

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.

Our annual statement outlines how we will achieve our vision.

Cambridge is a diverse city and we are proud of that diversity in local communities and in our workforce. We have a strong track record of delivering high-quality services to our residents, particularly targeting our resources to meet the needs of the most vulnerable.

We are committed to team working and to working with partners where appropriate to make the best use of our collective resources. 

“For me, the job is immensely rewarding, especially when there are positive outcomes.” – Cambridge City Council employee

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.

“Cambridge City Council is a good employer. I originally joined because I had previously worked for private companies, I wanted a change and wanted to work for a not-for-profit organisation – it aligned better with some of my principles. As an organisation, they offer a very flexible working environment, a contributory pension scheme which they too contribute towards for you, and a friendly working atmosphere.” – Cambridge City Council employee

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.
