Welcome to Plymouth City Council



Thank you for your interest in joining Plymouth City Council.

I am really pleased that you are interested in finding out more about joining our team and working for Britain’s Ocean City. I am proud of the work we do to make Plymouth one of Europe’s most vibrant waterfront cities, where everyone has an outstanding quality of life.

Plymouth is a springboard for innovation and creativity across the UK - we are a place where great ideas are born and legacies are made. Our city is rooted in marine engineering, cultural industry, health and social care. We are home to the UK’s first National Marine Park, ‘The Box’ - an outstanding new regional £47m museum and have recently secured Freeport status for our thriving maritime industries.

We are a fast-growing city and are on a course to increase our population in the coming years.

Such a scale of growth presents the city and the wider region with a huge opportunity to create a better future for everyone, where we create jobs, support increased earnings, increase productivity, improve living standards, drive aspiration through education and skills, ensure the housing needs of local people are met, tackle climate change and deliver quality services and facilities for those living in and visiting the city.

We have big plans to reshape this incredible place for generations to come. We are unapologetically ambitious. The people of Plymouth can and should expect to live an amazing quality of life, achieving great things.  We want people to join us and share our passion and unwavering commitment. 

Together with our partners, we have developed a clear set of objectives to help us to reach even greater heights. We have an ambitious leadership team who are keen to drive forward bold plans across the city.

We will deliver a thriving city that leaves no one behind, whilst at the same time, we are mindful of the challenging economic and financial conditions within which we operate and we are modernising our Council so that it is best placed to continue to provide good quality, efficient and reliable services.

If you are passionate, energetic, and creative and have what it takes to inspire people and a place that continues the outstanding legacy Plymouth has built, then step forward and take your place. 

Dream big, work hard, and be part of the legacy. If you share our vision, a brilliant career is waiting for you.

Yours sincerely,

Tracey Lee
