JOB OPPORTUNITIES

Welcome - thank you for your interest in our job opportunities.

On this site you can find out more about Ryedale District Council as an organisation, and how you can join us to further your career...

As a district council, we have a very special role to play in the lives of citizens across Ryedale. We deliver the services that people rely on, day-to-day. We are responsible for housing, for leisure and recreation, for waste and recycling, planning and environmental health. But beyond that, we’re the people "on the ground". We really know and understand our communities, and we work to give everyone in Ryedale the best opportunities, and the best quality of life.

Taking up that challenge will need your commitment, creativity and skill. You’ll need to solve problems, work across boundaries and think up new ways to tackle difficult issues. Working for a district council is no soft option, but if you’re up to the task, you’ll find it one of the most rewarding jobs there is.

Doing what’s right for Ryedale.

It’s more than a slogan.

Employing fewer than 200 people, Ryedale District Council is one of the smallest district councils in England. Our team may be small in size, but we’ve got big ambitions for the Council and the people we serve.

Right now, our elected members and officers are working to create a new Council Plan that will direct our activities through to 2023. We’ll be driving the economic development of our district, creating inclusive spaces and places where people can thrive, and setting the pace on sustainability and tackling climate change.

We have a big agenda, and we’re looking for people with the technical skills, drive and enthusiasm to make it happen.

Small can be beautiful.

As a small council, Ryedale is a place where you really can get to know everyone, make links across departments, and feel part of a common enterprise. It’s a place where you’ll make friends as well as colleagues, and where you’ll soon feel at home.

Just lately we launched our People and Culture Plan, developed by our staff. Through the Plan we’re proactively supporting the performance, the engagement, and the health and wellbeing of everyone at Ryedale District Council.

We’re on track to achieve our first Wellbeing Award, and as a member of staff you’ll have access to our employee benefits scheme, cycle-to-work scheme and free onsite parking.

And with our new training plan about to launch, we can help you develop your talent and your skills.

If you’ve always thought of senior management as remote, get ready to think again. At our monthly all-staff briefings, you’ll find out about strategic developments and have the chance to ask questions of the CEO and other service leads. You’ll have a voice. We’re that kind of place.

Ryedale District Council people are strong, supportive and passionate. They challenge, and they communicate. If that sounds like you too, come and join us. You’ll fit right in.

We think Ryedale’s pretty special.

Covering more than 150,000 hectares, it is geographically the largest district in North Yorkshire, and includes some of the most beautiful countryside in England. We’re obviously not the only ones who think so, as there are around 5.5m tourist trips to our district each year.

A large part of the North York Moors National Park sits within Ryedale, along with the Howardian Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. But our countryside isn’t just nice to look at. It’s practical too. Ryedale is a rich agricultural area, with a sprinkling of market leaders in bio-tech and advanced engineering adding diversity to the economy.

We’re noted for our market towns - Helmsley, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Malton. Eminently "instagrammable", these are also "real" Yorkshire places, with a true community life and spirit. With its independent shops, restaurants and monthly food market, Malton is known as Yorkshire’s food capital. And the home of Ryedale District Council’s headquarters, of course!
