Make a difference
Working for Devon you will meet likeminded, passionate people who make a difference to this beautiful county. Without the staff at Devon County Council, we would not be able to build our strong, resilient communities, look after the beautiful landscapes or provide first class education to the thousands of children in the county.
We are committed to providing a workplace that values parents and carers. Our flexible working policies make Devon an ideal place to work whatever your situation. We also offer maternity, paternity and shared parental leave.
We welcome people from all parts of our community, the UK and other countries. We positively encourage people with protected characteristics under the Equality Act to join us no matter what your age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership or pregnancy and maternity characteristics.
Health and wellbeing
We believe that a positive working environment that allows employees to thrive and achieve is only possible if our staff feel supported. Our Employee Assistance Programme is a free confidential, impartial service that provides advice on any issue 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our OneSmallStep service offers advice and support to anyone seeking to make healthy changes in their life, whether that be losing weight, cutting down on alcohol consumption or quitting smoking. We also provide eye care vouchers and have an occupational health programme.
Our Devon Discounts scheme provides our employees with great savings both locally and nationally. We have discounts on everything from gyms, to hotels, to cars, to language lessons, to travel and transport.
