Thank you for your interest in joining the leadership team at the City of Edinburgh Council.

You might be asking yourself why you should consider joining us?

First, Edinburgh is steeped in history, seamlessly blending old and new, giving you the perfect location to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of a diverse and vibrant city. We are an outstanding capital city, recognised across the globe as a leader in business, the arts and science. We’re also home to the Scottish Parliament.

It is an excellent city in which to live, work, study, visit and invest.

The second reason is the challenge and opportunity that working for the City of Edinburgh Council will give you.

We spent most of 2020 facing up to enormous challenges that none of us could ever have predicted. The global pandemic brought immense change and a great deal of uncertainty. It also shone a light on the health of our people and planet as well as underlining the need to protect and support the most vulnerable in society.

As part of our leadership team, you will be able to take part in the vision for the city moving forward.

You will play a central role in leading and shaping the continued success of this 21st century capital city. We are a unique and diverse organisation, which supports and maintains the life-blood of the city – we make the city run, we support the people who live, study, visit or do business here. We make a difference to people’s lives.

People are at the centre of everything we do – whether it’s our employees, our residents or our visitors. This is key to developing the culture and behaviours I want to embed in our organisation as we continue to transform the way we do business.
