It's been said we are one of the most entrepreneurial, forward thinking and ambitious councils in the country. And we believe our employees reflect that spirit and drive that is needed to make a real difference to the people of Gateshead, helping them to thrive and improving their lives for the better.
When you work for us, you are working for a council that, even in these challenging times, is ambitious and not afraid of taking risks - a trait that has established our reputation as a council whose actions speak louder than words.
We value our employees and respect the skills and knowledge they bring. We strive to create a friendly and supportive environment where views are listened to and 'thinking out of the box' is encouraged.
As a council we are aware that people have commitments and pressures outside of work - we offer support and encourage employees to have a good work / life balance. We are one of a small number of North East employers to have achieved four years of the Continuing Excellence level of the North East Better Health at Work Award.
If you are successful in your application to work for us, you will be joining a team that is welcoming, supportive and friendly, as well as one that puts its residents first and achieves results.
