Jobs and training

North Somerset Council is a high performing council and a great place to work. We have a value driven, engaged, agile and motivated workforce.   

We are a unitary authority. This means we are responsible for all local government services. This includes things like:

  • social services
  • recycling and bins
  • roads
  • environmental protection
  • planning
  • libraries and children's centres
  • housing

To run these front line services, we need a wide variety of staff at all skill levels - from accountants to graphic designers.

Our over 1,500 employees are based in two central hubs in Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare. Some even work from home. As a complex organisation, we can offer you many different career options.
