As a member of the pioneering Co-operative Councils Network, we aim to:

  • Bring together and improve services
  • Involve local people and employees more in the planning and running of services  
  • Encourage people to do more to help their own communities

We serve a population of 170,000 people and our population is younger than the national average. Our borough is predicted to grow in the next 13 years - adding nearly another 30,000 people. We are investing in growth in the borough, and this presents an opportunity to attract new businesses – our Southwater development reflects some of our aspirations and regeneration.

We deliver a diverse range of services to all our communities and we are constantly aiming to improve the quality of these. To do this, we want to recruit enthusiastic individuals who are determined to succeed in their careers, to help us to achieve and maintain our goals and high standards.
