About Us:

Oxfordshire has a wonderful balance between beautiful Cotswold countryside and quaint villages and towns against the urban dynamic of the world-renowned City of Oxford and surrounding market towns. It is a thriving county with one of the fastest growing economies in the country with a rapidly growing science sector and the base for many national and internationally recognised companies and organisations. As a result of this growth, the county has seen significant investment in both large and small infrastructure schemes in the last few years which has required changes to the way the Council works and engages with its residents and businesses

We are looking for experienced and well-motivated staff to help shape the future delivery of the service as well as manage and coordinate traffic on the public highway.

 

Communities

The Communities Directorate consists of approximately 800 staff supporting the County’s Highway, Waste, Property, Environment, Strategic Planning and Safety functions with many more people engaged in service delivery through our key supply chain or partner organisations.

 

The newly formed Communities Directorate plays a key role in delivering the council’s vision to have

•           Thriving Communities – where every community thrives and everyone can play an active part

•           Thriving People – where everyone leads safe, healthy lives while people with the greatest need are cared for

•           Thriving Economy – which creates jobs and homes for the future

 

To do this we are seeking staff who will “do the best they can for residents” by;

•           working together in a supportive and honest way

•           striving to find the best solutions being open to change and doing things differently
