Information about job vacancies at Aberdeen City Council

View of Aberdeen City from the Bridge of Dee

Aberdeen is a thriving and cosmopolitan city with a buoyant economy that is driven by the energy, technology and life science sectors. The city region effortlessly combines the bustle of city living with easy access to stunning mountain and coastal scenery. The region is consistently recognised as having the highest quality of life in Scotland. With a population of 203,000 and unemployment rates that are consistently lower than the national average, we have a lot of great things going for us.

Our vision for Aberdeen is one of progress. There is so much we can do to fulfil our potential as an outstanding community and the council is committed to achieving more. Our aspirations are high with the people we serve at the centre of all we do. This includes, but is not limited to, delivering outcomes for social inclusion, promoting caring and inclusive communities, providing first class housing, opportunities for new businesses and better transport links, all in a top quality environment.

We want to develop a culture where people feel valued, trusted and supported. If you're as dedicated to service improvement as we are, we look forward to receiving your application.
