Peterborough is a unique combination of a New Town with a historic medieval core that has ambitious plans for the future. It is currently experiencing considerable investment in the city centre, including the opening of the University campus, along with the growth of new urban extensions on the edge of the city. Plans to revitalise the train station quarter will offer a positive welcome for every visitor.

Located on the A1 and the East Coast Main Line, we are in a highly accessible location that makes us an attractive location for new business and homes. An enviable parkway and cycleway network mean you can get around the city in next to no time. We wear our green credentials proudly and are committed to projects to ensure that Peterborough becomes the UK’s Environment Capital.

Our friendly team are based in smart new offices at Fletton Quays, but we can accommodate a high level of remote working due to a paperless, agile working framework. The successful candidate will benefit from a flexible working practice, subsidised car parking, car lease and cycle to work schemes, options to purchase extra annual leave, staff discounts and subsidised gym membership as well as a generous local government pension.

We will accept a CV or job application form.
