Working for Us

Local Government is a dynamic and stimulating environment and we offer a wide range of opportunities as well as the many benefits local authority service brings.

The people who work for us come from a range of different backgrounds and they are our greatest asset. We encourage team working and you will find people here both professional and friendly.

Eastbourne is a small but ambitious authority with a track-record for innovation and creative thinking. The council is committed to providing services and resources to support activities which benefit the town as a whole and are not limited to statutory duties.

Working with us means that you can make a difference to the lives of local people on a daily basis. Perhaps the most important benefit of working at the Council is the knowledge that you're working to help others, and the real sense of achievement that brings.

Equal Opportunities

We are an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
