Working for Dorset Council
We’re not a traditional council that’s set in its ways. Our residents’ needs are constantly evolving, so we need to be adaptable and open to continuous change. That’s why we challenge ourselves to work collaboratively with them to design and deliver services differently. We think innovatively about how we use technology and create services based on data and research, so we genuinely meet people’s needs.
Dorset offers a great quality of life. So, we’re proud that everything we do improves that quality of life for the people of Dorset, both now and for the future. And that we all play a vital role in making this happen. Our work delivers real benefits to residents, businesses and visitors across Dorset.
We all share a passion for improving life throughout Dorset. So, we work as one team, energising, challenging and inspiring each other every day. We openly support and develop each other, going out of our way to offer knowledge, time and practical help. It means keeping everyone informed through leadership and employee forums and celebrating individuality and diversity through our employee networks.
What we do matters. We play a vital role in the life of everyone who lives in, works in or visits Dorset. You’ll find a variety of exciting challenges, in a workplace that inspires you to grow professionally and personally. Somewhere you know you’re making a real difference, whatever your role, because you see the results across our county every day.
You’ll be joining an organisation that works as one team in an open, friendly, supportive atmosphere. Where everyone trusts and respects each other. Where people go out of their way to share their knowledge and skills, so you always feel well-informed. Most of all, a place where you feel trusted, respected and valued for your unique contribution.
