Come and join the team at South Ribble Borough Council!
We are forward-thinking, innovative and just happen to be based in the ‘Best Place to Live’ in the UK!
As a local authority, we’ve long been known for punching above our weight and that’s down to the hard work of our talented officers and dedicated members.
We work to the mantra of ‘One council, one team, creating excellence.’
And there’s never been a better time to join!
Under our new Chief Executive, Heather McManus, we’re transforming the way we work to improve our services for residents.
We’re also a key partner in the £430m Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal which is bringing forward 30 years of growth in a decade – creating 20,000 jobs, 17,000 new homes and delivering multi-million pound infrastructure improvements for our communities.
As an authority we want to be the best in the country and our vision is to be a council that is recognised for being innovative, forward thinking and financially self-sufficient, while putting people at the heart of everything we do.
As an employer, we’re extremely proud to hold the Investors in People Gold award – a prestigious mark of high performance in business and people management.
Based in the heart of Lancashire, commuting to our two Leyland sites is helped by direct access to three major motorway networks and great public transport links. Plus our staff car parks are free to use!
