THINK SMARTER WITH OXFORDSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL

 

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 is involved in Housing Investment Fund and Growth Deal projects involving significant investment in both large and small infrastructure schemes. We are developing and providing the delivery of infrastructure investment of up to £500million value over the coming 5 years. To deliver this programme we need teams of highly committed, motivated and skilled construction specialists. We are committed to career development of all team members to ensure effective delivery of these infrastructure projects.

 

Between now and 2031, we are reimagining the potential of this incredible county. As one of the most productive economies outside of London (generating more than £7billion gross each year), we have more jobs than residents – and the scope to keep developing. We are therefore investing £millions in infrastructure, housing, transport and connectivity – while private sector and central government investments are catapulting this into £multi-million territory. 

 

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.
