Why BCP?

These are exciting times at Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council (BCP), with local government reorganisation representing significant opportunities for growth and transformation. We have an opportunity to make our thriving, world-class area a prosperous and inclusive place for generations to come.

Our vision is to create a place of aspiration where plans are made, and ambitions are achieved for all of our residents. We want to create a healthy and vibrant place where everyone feels a part of the future that BCP Council is creating and where our social workers and professionals can do their best work and have fulfilling careers.

There really is no better time to join what is one of the UK’s largest unitary authorities, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. For the right individuals, we can offer career defining roles to transform and improve services, ensuring the needs of our residents are understood and they are safe, independent, healthy and able to share in our positive vision.

Our roles provide challenging opportunities to develop professionally in a visually stunning area with great schools and an expanding University. Whilst we have a thriving local economy there are also pockets of significant deprivation with their associated social challenges. It is also a multi-cultural area serving a diverse population. We have developed some innovative ways of responding through our partnerships and by our services, but we need to do more to meet the complex challenges.

If you are committed, driven and have the ideas and passion to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities, then we want to hear from you.
