Thank you for your interest in working with us at Devon County Council.

We are continuing to recruit to our adverts listed on DevonJobs but due to business pressures during COVID-19, there may be a delay in responding to you at the closing date.

Please note, interviews are taking place remotely and that for some roles you may be asked to undertake an on-line assessment.

If you are unsure about applying for a job opportunity, please contact the manager named on the job advert.

Strong communities are at the heart of everything we do. Whether town, city or smallest hamlet, each comes with its own unique challenges and opportunities.

Communities is a broad job area and could see you working in a variety of roles. We employ people to help develop local businesses and social enterprises, help preserve our county’s ecology and protect residents from scams and faulty goods.

Being such a large county, we are in the position of dealing with rural, urban and coastal communities and the issues they face.
