Welcome to South Bucks

Thank you for your interest in joining South Bucks District Council at such a key time in our development.

We are making rapid progress across all services initially energised with our move in October 2004 to brand new offices which reinforced a culture of change and innovation and has helped us to raise performance across the board.  We have a clear strategy to maintain and improve the quality of life in South Bucks and this is expressed in a series of aims which translate into specific plans and targets for every service we provide, either ourselves or increasingly in partnership with other agencies like the police or parish councils. We hope you will read those plans and get a flavour of the issues which matter most to the people of South Bucks.

Priorities and Performance

We are of course a relatively small council and whilst this always brings its own pressures around limited resources, it has not meant a lack of ambition or an acceptance of status quo.  Elected councillors work as a team with officers and that teamwork has ensured that our commitment to continuous improvement means a lot more than just words.

Our size also means that every individual and every job is valued and supported because every individual's contribution is vital. Each role within the Council is important to achieve our goals and objectives and you will find that we are committed to providing as many job, personal and career development opportunities for all staff as we can.

We hope you will decide to apply for the post you have seen.  Our recruitment process has been designed to enable us to appoint the best candidate to every post we offer. On this website you should find all the relevant information for the job you are considering.

If you choose to apply for a position and have not been offered an interview within two weeks of the closing date, please assume that on this occasion you have not been successful. If you are not offered an interview, we understand that you will be disappointed, but we do hope you will apply for other Council posts that interest you in the future. The appointing officers will provide feedback to unsuccessful applicants on request.

If you have any questions about the recruitment process, please contact 01895 837392, we will be pleased to help in any way we can.
