Why BCP?

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) is the UK’s newest city region and it’s brimming with prospects, positivity and pride. It is the tenth largest urban Local Authority in England, with a population of almost 400,000, which is expected to grow rapidly.

Our vision is to make our thriving, world-class area a prosperous and inclusive place for generations to come, and ambitions are achieved for all our residents. As part of BCP Council’s Big Plan, we are committed to developing vibrant communities, with an outstanding quality of life, where everyone plays an active role and where our professionals can do their best work and have fulfilling careers.

There really is no better time to join us, where you will be based in an area of outstanding natural beauty with award winning coastline. 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.
