We are a small rural Council serving the market towns of Richmond, Hawes and Leyburn alongside the military community based in and around Catterick Garrison, and our remote villages, hamlets and farming communities within the Yorkshire Dales.
We are lucky to live and work in such a beautiful area and our workforce and Elected Members represent all that is special about this part of North Yorkshire. Our aim is to provide the best possible service to our residents, businesses and visitors and our staff enjoy the satisfaction and challenges this brings.
There are many rewards for working with the Council, including competitive salaries for the area, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, and flexible working arrangements. Whilst operational staff work out of a Depot in Richmond, our office based staff enjoy outstanding new accommodation at Mercury House, our 'home' in grounds overlooking the banks of the River Swale, close to the amenities of the Market Place.
Whilst we are the largest civilian employer in the District, we are very much one big family where the term 'work/life balance' is not just talked about, but is alive and well here in Richmondshire. We invite you to come and join us.
