Allerdale Borough Council
Cutting-edge, challenging, vibrant and diverse - at Allerdale Borough Council we are committed to excellence in everything we do.
With around 400 staff, our aim is to recruit and develop talented people who will focus on our customers, take responsibility, work together and find better ways of delivering council services to support our vision of making Allerdale a great place to live, work and visit.
Allerdale is a stimulating and enjoyable place to work – a region of breath-taking natural beauty, with traditional market towns and picturesque villages. Situated at the north-western edge of Cumbria, Allerdale stretches from the Solway coast in the north down to its largest town of Workington in the west and is bounded by the Lake District mountains. Allerdale has a population of around 94,000, mainly living in Workington and the other main towns: Cockermouth, Keswick, Maryport and the northern market towns of Silloth, Wigton and Aspatria.
The Council’s staff developed a set of core values which guide how the Council deals with its customers, staff and partners throughout the borough and beyond. Our values ensure fairness, integrity and accountability in all that the Council does:
- Value each other
- Achieve things together
- Listen to each other
- Understand and respect each other
- Ensure equality in all we do
- Succeed in making our vision and values a reality.
Allerdale Borough Council is very progressive in its attitude to change. We have embraced the Government's agenda to modernise local government and our approach has been to lead change rather than follow it. We believe that to deliver the best services to our residents we need to develop staff to their full potential and provide them with the relevant knowledge, equipment and authority to carry out their duties.
To do this, we need the best people working for us. You might be a local resident looking for work in your community, a local government professional seeking to advance your career with an award-winning council - or you might be somebody who's never considered working in local government before. Whatever your background, we want you to consider us.
