At Middlesbrough Council we are passionate about our people, and proud of the exciting, rewarding careers we offer, helping us to deliver the high quality services our residents deserve.

Middlesbrough is at the heart of the Tees Valley, with a vibrant cultural and entertainment scene, and a bustling town centre with high-brand stores and a vibrant mix of bars and restaurants, as well as art galleries, museums and Green Flag parks. The warmth of our people, a mix of affordable and private housing developments, regeneration programmes, and a lower cost of living, make Middlesbrough a really great place to live and work.

We want our staff to live and breathe our values, and help make a difference to our town. In return for their hard work and commitment, we offer a brilliant culture with an excellent benefits package including generous annual leave, family-friendly and work-life balance opportunities, and fantastic training and development, to help you achieve your potential.   

Hear from our Chief Executive...


Having a diverse and inclusive workforce is good for business

It enables us to broaden our vision and draw on a greater number of perspectives to be able to challenge group thinking and create new ideas.

Having a workforce that reflects the demographic of the community we serve helps us to provide excellent customer service.

We welcome new ideas and innovative ways to connect with our staff, and our employee engagement groups are at the heart of this, including Equality and Inclusion, Disability & Wellbeing, BAME, Gender, LGBT+ and Carer Networks.

We have an amazing network of Mental Health First Aiders, Health Advocates and Champions across the Council who are passionate about supporting staff.
