Permanent (37 hours a week)

We are offering three exceptional people the exciting opportunity to join Team NPT on our mission to make Neath Port Talbot a place where people are proud to live, learn, work, and raise their families.
As with the rest of the country, the post Covid-19 landscape presents significant challenges but also opportunities. Here at Neath Port Talbot Council we intend to make the most of these opportunities, building on the enormous community and partnership response during the pandemic.

These are exciting times in Neath Port Talbot. There is lots to do with innovative and ground breaking initiatives to be part of. Over the next few years, we will be dealing with a huge range of applications including new wind farms as Developments of National Significance (DNS), transformational projects such as the ‘Global Centre of Rail Excellence’ (GCRE) and the ‘Wildfox Resorts Afan Valley’, as well as a number of other large-scale education, employment and tourism related developments.

And, as we move towards recovery, you will also play a key role in progressing our ambitious capital investment programme including new schools, town centre regeneration, and culture, tourism and leisure projects. We are also leading on the delivery of a regional City Deal programme of projects to boost low carbon growth, support our steel industry, and create high quality jobs in the innovation and cleantech sectors.

This beautiful part of south Wales is located between the cities of Swansea and Cardiff, close to the Gower Peninsula and the Brecon Beacons. Valleys and waterfalls, rivers and coastline provide a backdrop for many activities including walking, mountain biking and surfing. With over 140,000 residents and service users, this is a thriving area, rich in history, but with eyes fixed firmly on the future.

If you’re up to the challenge, we look forward to hearing from you.
