Working for East Suffolk Councils

A brand new super district council for east Suffolk will begin operation in April 2019, replacing Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils to deliver vital services for local communities. It will be among the very 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 provide outstanding frontline services while also driving down costs and giving local taxpayers better value for money.

East Suffolk is a wonderful 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 provide first-class support to ensure a rewarding career within our organisation. As well as a wide range of opportunities for training and development we offer superb benefits packages, generous leave entitlement, discount schemes and a generous pension scheme.

We have recently produced a film about working for the east Suffolk councils with current staff and councillors explaining why it is such a special place to work. We hope that you will join us on this exciting journey.
