Suffolk County Council Careers and Employment

About us
In 2019 we were shortlisted as finalists for the Working Families Best Practice awards and Personnel Today Diversity and Inclusion (Public Sector) award for our commitment to promoting flexible working options for existing and new staff.

This shows our commitment to removing barriers to flexible and part-time working at all levels within the organisation.
 – more... We now advertise close to 100% of our jobs offering at least one form of flexible working and we are proud to be recognised as an employer that supports our staff to work flexibly.

We are also proud to have such a strong group of staff networks serve as a reference point for discussion, shared experiences, mutual support and knowledge, but actively promote the positive values and contribution colleagues within these groups can bring to Suffolk and the communities we serve.


The networks are one of the ways we empower our staff to be their true selves in the workplace. Networks influence the organisation to be more inclusive, through work on policy, service development, training, communications, events, culture and have a seat at Suffolk County Council's Strategic Equalities and Inclusion Board. You can read more about our staff networks by visiting our careers page.


Our disABILITY staff network is currently working with HR to achieve Leader status as a Disability Confident employer. This will recognise us as a disability positive employer, showing that we are committed to providing an inclusive recruitment process and a supportive working environment for staff with all forms of disabilities.


In addition to a fantastic working environment, we offer an attractive range of benefits for new starters, including; a contributory pension scheme, a generous annual leave entitlement with an option to purchase additional days, occupational maternity, paternity and adoption leave, access to a benefits scheme offering discounts on a wide range of goods and services including discounts on a range of high street retailers, plus lots more.
