Why Wokingham?

Wokingham Borough is a Unitary Authority which has the statutory powers of both District and County Council all under one roof. Whilst we are relatively small we pack quite a punch. We are working differently to other Councils across the country as our programme is all about managing growth – both for the borough and individual employees. We have an ambitious programme to deliver new housing and infrastructure to serve new and existing communities. Much of this growth and development has already been realised and we are currently embarking on the next period for expansion to 2036 and beyond.

Our excellent existing team of staff have been at heart of the growth agenda, planning and delivering the change. As they have progressed our staff have been able to build upon and develop new skills and to gain some of the best experience available in the country within both the public or private sectors. We are now in an exciting position to recruit new people to fill roles that will enable us to continue on this journey.

As a member of our Delivery, Highways and Transport and Planning teams, you’ll have the chance to work on some major developments and projects that will future-proof our networks with new and emerging technology. You will not just be working on one element of these projects, you will be working on them from initial planning, through to completion.

You’ll also help us with our commitment to counteracting climate change and reducing pollution and social exclusion. Working for Wokingham Borough, you’ll have the chance to truly make a difference.
