We are ambitious for our borough – a place where local businesses and high streets can thrive; our children and young people continue to receive an outstanding education and families flourish; great care is offered to those who need it; and deprivation tackled and inequalities are reduced.
This means a broad range of careers are open to you with us.
Our values are something important to us all – we listen, we care, we are ambitious, and we are good value for money. We serve the people of North Tyneside and are passionate about keeping the Borough a great place to live, work and visit by delivering on the policy priorities set in the Our North Tyneside Plan.
We are a Council that values and promotes equality and diversity and we work hard to ensure that no one experiences discrimination or disadvantage because of their characteristics, background or personal circumstances.
We want to find talented people that want to make a difference to our communities and who believe in our core values and can demonstrate these in everything they do.
I wish you all the best with your application.
