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.

At Birmingham City Council (BCC), we are committed to creating an environment and culture that promotes equality, diversity and inclusion; making sure BCC is a place for people to be their best, authentic selves. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, including those with caring responsibilities and flexible working options will be considered. We are building up our vibrant staff networks for peer-led support, with safe spaces for those who need it and offer access to our talent programmes to support everyone in reaching their aspirations and fulfilling their potential.

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 will support you to develop and thrive in your role, building a pathway for long-term success. One of the many incentives of joining the council is the opportunity to earn a recognised apprenticeship qualification, funded through the apprenticeship levy at no cost to you.”

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