At this time, due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some of our employees are working remotely from home, but a return to a combination of remote and physical working from Council offices is planned. in a close future.

As a newcomer, your contract location will be the designated council office for your team. Your working arrangements will vary depending on your department and role, as well as current government guidelines.
