Why work for Surrey?

Coronavirus update

Subject to the ongoing situation, it's essential that we continue recruiting safely. Therefore, interviews and communication will be virtual wherever possible and this will be communicated to you directly by the hiring manager.

Please also expect that advert closing dates and interview dates may change as required. We still continue to welcome applications for our current roles and wish you the best of luck with your application.

We would welcome applications especially for our most critical roles to ensure we're supporting our residents

Working for Surrey means making a practical and positive difference to the lives of people living and working in the county.

Each one of our 23,000 staff – whatever job they're doing – can feel motivated by having a unique opportunity to use their skills to make Surrey a better place to live. Whether that's by protecting children and people from harm, making Surrey's roads safer with accident prevention schemes or conserving our beautiful countryside.

What drives us all is delivering outstanding services and by focusing on the changing needs of our residents we are achieving this. Over the last ten years, we've driven a major change programme that has revolutionised everything we do - from where we work to the services we provide.

But we want to make Surrey an even better place to live and we understand that the key to achieving this is by building a workforce that can offer a range of different skills and life experiences across a variety of jobs.

In return for your skills and commitment, we promise to provide an even better place to work – with a supportive and friendly environment, and flexible ways of working that make a positive difference to you. We also offer a rewarding, stimulating and challenging career path that follows the principles of openness and fairness every step of the way.

Committed to equality and diversity, we aim to promote an inclusive culture for all staff. So, whatever your background, ethnicity, sex and gender, religion or sexual orientation, we welcome you, and your application.
