Working for Cumberland Council

We have the opportunity to create a fantastic new council for the people of Cumberland. This is an opportunity to build on the work that is already in place and to make our services even better for everyone. What better than to be at the forefront and leading that change? 

Staff will be crucial to our success. That's why we want a culture which where you feel empowered to make decisions; and relationships are based on trust and integrity. We shall also care about each other and our communities. 

We want to invest as much as possible in our workforce, such as training and development. And whilst we have a strong desire to get things done right first time - we won't be afraid to try new ways of doing things and learn when we don't get it quite right.  

We'll recognise good performance and understand and remove barriers to achieving this.

Cumberland Council

On 1 April 2023 local government in Cumbria changed, with Cumberland Council providing all your council services.  

Don't worry though, your bins will be emptied as normal, and you'll still be able to speak to the same team about any enquiries to do with things like council tax, benefits, planning or any other service.

Find out more about the changes.

Keep up to date by finding and following the new council on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
