Working for us

As a Council with improvement at its heart, we’re committed to making life better for the people who live and work in Coventry. We’re equally concerned with the quality of life enjoyed by our people, so by joining us, you won’t just be helping the community, you’ll be helping yourself.

We are a large employer with lots of varied and interesting jobs, so there could be one to suit you – our career pathways provide good opportunities to build your career.

We’re also good at what we do. Government reports say that we are a “progressive authority” and we have a great reputation for improving services across many areas.

Coventry itself is a lively, multicultural city, which embraces old and new. Around the modern city centre you'll find traces of history everywhere - in the old city walls, the timber-framed buildings and the reconstructed medieval Spon Street. But Coventry has always had an eye on the future, and is now firmly focused on regenerating and re-inventing itself to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

Located in the heart of England, motorway and rail access is excellent, making Coventry a very attractive place to live, work and learn. Coventry has one of the most compact city centres in the country. The city has a growing reputation for the quality of life it offers its residents — and is surrounded by the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.

Improving the diversity of our workplaces to reflect the diverse population of Coventry is one our goals.

We treat people with fairness and respect and value and celebrate their diversity.
