About Birmingham City Council

Birmingham banner

Working for Birmingham City Council is more than just a job; it's about making life better for the 1 million plus people who live and work in the city.

Birmingham is a brilliantly diverse and creative city and everyone associated with Birmingham City Council is proud of its great history and unequalled contribution to the development of modern local government.

It is a fantastic place to work and you will find an organisation that is both challenging and supportive; with a leadership impatiently adventurous in its pursuit of excellence.

There is a clear vision which is ensuring that collectively the council is working for communities today and building for tomorrow, we plan to focus our resources on four key priorities:

  • Children – so Birmingham is a great city to grow up in;
  • Housing – so Birmingham is a great city to live in;
  • Jobs and skills – so Birmingham is a great city to succeed in and
  • Health – so Birmingham is a great city to grow old in.

The council is just one key player in achieving these priorities. Over the next few years, our financial situation remains challenging so our role in the city needs to change. One of the biggest shifts we’ll need to make is to move from directly delivering services to a position where we use our resources to enable and facilitate others. This means a much greater focus on collaboration and partnerships.

We see the council’s role as providing strategic leadership – that’s being able to visualise a new future for the city and equipping others to share our vision. We want to ensure the provision of services for all, so we can support those least able to support themselves. And we’ll work with partners and put citizens and neighbourhoods at the heart of our decision-making.

For more information see our Council Plan; https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/20011/your_council/237/council_financial_plan.

We are always looking for people of the highest calibre whose knowledge, skills and experience will help us provide the best possible service to achieve our vision.

In return, we can offer you excellent terms and conditions such as annual leave, pension scheme, childcare vouchers, annual travel passes and discounts at a number of city centre establishments.

We welcome applications from people with caring responsibilities and flexible working options will be considered.

Since June 2012, Birmingham City Council has been a Foundation Living wage employer - known as the Birmingham Living Wage.  This is not the same as the National Living Wage which is a legal requirement.  The Birmingham Living Wage, is determined by the Living Wage Foundation on an annual basis by the Centre of Research in Society Polity at Loughborough University.  The current rate can be found at: www.livingwage.org.uk.

The intent being to recognise the importance for individuals, families and society of people being able to earn a living.  The idea is rooted in notions of contribution, reciprocity and community.
