Work for Herefordshire Council

Herefordshire is a beautiful, historic county located in the heart of the Marches on the border with Wales. We are one of the most rural and sparsely populated counties in England with a wealth of unspoilt countryside, distinctive heritage, and lively and attractive market towns.

Herefordshire Council provides a wide range of services that combine to make a difference to residents' lives on a daily basis. When recruiting, we look for innovative, professional and committed individuals who will help us to realise our priorities and uphold our values. All appointments are made based on the suitability of an individual candidate to the role. We offer a range of working benefits, and aim to help employees achieve and maintain a good work life balance.

Herefordshire Council is committed to improving the diversity of its workforce to make it more representative of the community it serves. We therefore welcome applicants whatever their personal characteristics or background. All requests for flexible working arrangements and reasonable adjustments will be considered. We are a Disability Confident Employer, which means that all disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria of the job are guaranteed an interview.

In line with the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, we consider every application individually, taking into account the nature and circumstances of any convictions and the type of work applied for. Applicants are not asked to disclose spent convictions unless the work requires access to children and vulnerable adults.
