Newcastle City Council - About Us

Newcastle is a great city – great staff doing great things for a great city
We are Proud, Fair and Ambitious – We are Newcastle

Working for the City Council in Newcastle isn’t like any other job. Everything we do has an impact on the people that live in our City so our commitment, diligence and energy have to be second to none.

Many people are surprised at the variety of roles that the Council offer. It’s certainly more than most expect and the breadth of talent that we employ and require is quite remarkable.

We currently employ over 5,000 staff in a range of services from gardeners to market managers, road menders to architects. They’re supported by equally varied staff ranging from accountants to solicitors, administrators to press officers.

As a council and as a city we have high aspirations including delivering the vision of a vibrant, inclusive, safe, sustainable and modern European city. At the same time we need to deliver ambitious change to keep to our financial targets.

Our people are the key to delivering successful outcomes for our customers and citizens, which is the focus of our work. We are driving organisational performance, transforming the way we work together. You can find out more about our Vision and Values, in our Council Plan.

Please take the time to explore the opportunities we currently have on offer, but if you don’t find any that suit you now, please don’t forget to set up email reminders so that we can tell you about jobs that suit your skills when they occur.
