Elmbridge Borough Council may not be an organisation that you have heard of, but it is one that you should consider for your next job role.

We are located in Esher, Surrey and cover towns such as Weybridge and Walton-on-Thames. You may not be based in the Borough but rest assured that there are good rail and road links to London and the South East.

With a gross annual expenditure of £70M, we have a workforce of over 300 people and are supported by countless volunteers and numerous partner organisations. We are a progressive organisation; one that prides itself on listening to our customers and to providing high quality services as cost effectively as possible. You can find out more about what we do in our Council Plan and Annual Report.

We believe in collaborative working, challenging ourselves to work smarter and above all, we place our residents at the centre of everything we do.

We are really keen on learning and development and more than willing to create a bespoke learning and development package for you. We want you to thrive at Elmbridge; if you enjoy your role and feel valued then both the organisation and our residents benefit.

There is also the flexibility; if you are seeking that elusive work life balance but don’t want to give up the challenging and thought-provoking parts of the job, then we could be the organisation for you.
