We are an ambitious council keen to build on our strong track record of innovation and partnership working, ensuring that we create a flourishing future for the borough and all of its residents. Key to this is a committed workforce who always gives their best. Offering a fast paced, progressive working environment, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is a great career move.

The successful candidate will have experience of working in an office environment with a general understanding of the Councils Constitution. Applications would be particularly welcomed from candidates with experience of drafting legal documents and undertaking legal research.
