Harlow Council is committed to the principles of equality of opportunity, fairness and equality for all, both in the services that it provides to the community and in its role as an employer.
We believe this can be better achieved by a workforce that values and reflects diversity. We have a diverse and dedicated workforce with a broad spectrum of skills.
We regularly recruit to fill a wide range of vacancies including permanent, fixed term, casual, full and part-time roles including apprenticeships.
As an organisation, we provide excellent training and development. We have a wide range of benefits for staff, such as a childcare voucher scheme and Career Average Revalued Earnings (CARE) Pension Scheme.
We follow safer recruitment procedures and expect all staff, regardless of their role, to show a commitment to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults.
