Dear Applicant

Thank you for requesting details of a position with Wychavon District Council.

Although a small Authority employing approximately 230 members of staff, Wychavon District Council covers a large geographical area and provides services to a diverse population.

Wychavon is nationally recognised as one of the best employers in the country, with a reputation for innovation, high performance and a forward-thinking culture. We're one of the Sunday Times' Best Places To Work In The Public / Third Sector, we're an Investors in People Champion and we were one of the first councils in the country to gain the Customer Service Excellence mark.

At Wychavon we take pride in spending our time and energy on what we know matters to our residents and local communities. We're a successful district council with a strong reputation for cutting through the red tape and getting things done – especially when it comes to improving services. Residents rate our services as some of the best in the country and their high levels of satisfaction with us overall and on value for money keep improving year-on-year. We also have an excellent reputation for managing cash resources. We're making cuts of 25% to our budgets over two years, but we've managed to keep the impact on frontline services to a minimum and we've frozen our Council Tax bills for residents.

I believe you will find Wychavon an informal and progressive place to work, offering an innovative approach to service provision. You will have the opportunity to use your skills, knowledge and past experience to continue to develop our resource plans and services to ensure they work together to support the Council's overall priorities.

Good luck with your application.

Jack Hegarty
Managing Director
