Working in North Lanarkshire

We have a vibrant, diverse and growing economy with a great mix of small, medium-sized and large businesses.

People are encouraged to participate in employment opportunities in North Lanarkshire yet also have the support they need to access jobs. They have skills appropriate to the needs of employers. They are supported, no matter their background, personal needs or economic circumstances.

The council is a special place to work, with engaged ambitious people who are ambassadors for the services they provide. We’re fizzing with energy, have bags of determination and we’re moving at a pace to make real changes to our communities and how we work together to deliver services.

Working here, every individual knows that their job has an impact on our people and helps our communities to flourish. Our services enhance lives, change experiences and foster relationships. Our services are aligned to support people at every stage of their life and we work with our partners, combining our skills and resources, to provide real, and sustainable solutions with, and for, our communities.

Structured under four services – Chief Executive’s, Education and Families, Enterprise and Communities and Adult Health and Social Care – we operate a collective approach to tackle the barriers to growth, reduce poverty and to open up opportunities to create more equal communities.

It’s vital that staff feel valued and our policies reflect our commitment to respecting diversity and equality in the workplace. Providing appropriate training to allow staff at any level, to achieve their own ambitions, is embedded in our work practices.

As well as competitive salaries, generous annual leave and an attractive pension scheme, there’s a great range of benefits, including our Work Well NL programme, flexible working and a new rewards and recognition scheme called NL Life. We’re a high-performing, solutions-focussed council and we need talented people with drive, skills and ambition to achieve our shared ambition.
