You put a lot in to your job. We believe you should get a lot back. A career at Reading Borough Council comes with a lot more than just a monthly salary. You can make the most of our flexible working arrangements, helping you to balance the demands of your home life with those of the workplace. And if the demands of home include looking after very little people, you’ll be pleased to know that we have an onsite nursery that is rated as Outstanding by Ofsted.

The council offers competitive salaries that reflect our desire to attract the best people to work here, and to reward them fairly for the great work that they do. And all our staff also benefit from being part of our local government pension scheme, helping you to plan for the future with confidence.
Reading Borough Council offers more than just your next job. It’s a place where you can shape your career.
