We are an ambitious organisation working hard to deliver the best services for people in Wolverhampton; working for us gives you the opportunity to make a difference to their lives.

Our ambition is to be nothing less than ‘excellent’; this year we have been ‘Highly Commended’ in the Local Authority of the Year award category at the Municipal Journal (MJ) Awards and awarded the Best

We are committed to working in partnership with communities, voluntary and private sector organisations and local businesses. Together we form the Wolverhampton Partnership to prioritise businesses, empower people and communities, re-invigorate the city and support the council to be confident and capable to realise our ambition to be ‘excellent’. 

The City of Wolverhampton Council employs over 7,400 people (Including 3,200 school employees) in more than 600 different trades and professions.

We are investing heavily in skills and training. There will be new roles and new opportunities which makes this an exceptionally exciting time to join us.
