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.

Professional and efficient staff to support the delivery of your public services.

Devon County Council:

Employs over 4,000 direct staff

Invests over 100,000 each year on major infrastructure

Has a gross budget of £1.1 billion

We rely on professional and support roles to make sure our services are delivered to the people who need them.

We deal with a lot of employees and budgets and therefore need lawyers, accountants, human resources officers and administrators to make sure our services run smoothly.

As a local authority, we also have roles you might not find elsewhere. For example, democratic support officers to assist with the business of elected representatives and scrutiny committees, registrars to keep official records of the county’s population and a coroner to deal with inquests into individual deaths.
