Nottingham City Council is known for its inclusiveness and innovation, and we are constantly working around the clock to provide services to Nottingham citizens, visitors and investors. Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a great city, but to do that we need to be a great council, provide great services and recruit and develop a great workforce. We will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern working methods, double your monthly pension contributions, offer you a very generous vacation package of 25 to 32 days each year (excluding public holidays and depending on seniority) and give you the possibility of purchasing up to 28 additional tax-free vacation days!

Nottingham City Council is committed to recruiting a talented workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We are a fair and inclusive employer and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and abilities. We recruit for diversity and value difference. We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you are from the Black, Asian and ethnic minority community, if you identify within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community and if you are disabled – these groups of people are underrepresented in our workforce, and we would like to better reflect our local population through our recruitment processes. We have always been open to flexible working and the COVID-19 pandemic has provided us with new options to work in a completely different way. We welcome a conversation about flexible working at interview time.
