We believe that Norfolk is a great place to live and work and as the largest provider of public services in the county we have great ambitions not only for our county but for the young people of Norfolk.
Our priorities are for our county to have:
- A well educated and skilled population.
- ‘Real’ jobs which pay well and have prospects.
- Businesses which move or grow here because we are well connected to the rest of the world through improved infrastructure - air, sea, road, rail, broadband and network coverage.
- Vulnerable people supported to live independently and safely in their communities.
- For this we need young people who are as keen and ambitious as we are, who take pride in their work, are innovative, business-like and collaborative and always deliver to the highest standards.
There are five main departments to work in within the council, these are:
- Adult Social Services: Looking after the social, mental and physical wellbeing of adults.
- Childrens Services: Looking after the education and social, physical and mental wellbeing of children.
- Community and Enviromental Services: Supporting residents, communities, businesses and visitors, including libraries and roads.
- Resources: Services supporting our democratic and day-to-day functions including HR and IT.
- Finance: Managing the council's finances including planning services, hiring staff and budgeting.
