Working for East Suffolk Councils

Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are two highly ambitious and progressive local authorities, who have now agreed to create a brand new super district council delivering vital services to the communities of east Suffolk. The first of its kind in the country.

The Councils have already enjoyed a successful shared services partnership since the appointment of a shared Chief Executive in 2008 and this has played a key role in our ability to drive down costs and provide outstanding frontline services, giving local tax payers better value for money.

East Suffolk is a great place to live and work. It combines beautiful coastline and delightful market towns with industry-leading energy hubs, commercial ports and fantastic economic opportunities. We want staff to stay with us for the longā€term and we will provide all the support we can to build a rewarding career within our organisation. We offer good opportunities for training and development as well as superb benefits packages, generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, and pension scheme.

We have recently agreed new corporate ‘values’, developed by our own staff, and the results of our most recent employee engagement survey are excellent and reflect how much our staff enjoy working for us. We are always looking for similarly ambitious professionals to join us on this exciting journey.
