The vacancies section lists the latest job vacancies within the Council and details on how to apply. These vacancies are normally updated on a daily basis. To view our current vacancies please visit the link within the 'Related Sites' section of this page.
All of the Council’s job vacancies are advertised on the national recruitment portal MyJobScotland. This is the national shared recruitment portal that enables all of Scotland’s 32 local authorities to advertise their vacancies in one place. Other public bodies such as the fire, rescue and police services can also use the site. It is widely recognised as the best public sector job site in the UK.
For prospective employees you’ll find the website easy to use. You can create your own MyJobScotland account so your information is saved and can be used for future applications. If you don’t see the job you want, make sure you register for job alerts, taking the hard work out of your job search and helping you find the job you want.
Visit the MyJobScotland website to find out more from the 'Related Sites' section of this page.
You may be asked a pre-screening question when you apply for a post. This is to save you the time and effort of filling in an application if you do not meet one of the essential criteria of the post.
If you are unable to apply online and need to apply using an alternative format, please contact the HR Support Team by telephone on 01856873535 extension 2250 or by email.
You should note that applications will not be considered after the deadline and CVs will not be accepted instead of an application or in addition to your application.
