All working together for the benefit of the community

As an organisation we have a big responsibility; we’re here to inspire and develop the next generation and we’re here to support our town to be a positive place for everyone living and working here.

To do that, we need talented, professional, committed people with diverse voices, cultures and experience. We look for people who are passionate about what they do, and who care about improving the lives of others.

We pride ourselves on providing a positive culture for all staff and we celebrate diversity in our workforce, recognising the wealth of ideas and experience that a diverse workforce can bring.

Joining our team means working for a people-focussed organisation which does great things in and for our community.
