On 01 November 2018, it was announced by the government that the five councils in Buckinghamshire will become a single unitary authority in April 2020.  Any changes made to the structure of local authorities in the county may affect council employees in the future.  Therefore, the five councils have agreed to restrict applications to this position to current employees of the five councils for a period of seven days from this date of posting. 

External candidates are welcome to submit their application at any point; however, if a current employee applies during this seven day period, their application will be assessed prior to the council considering applications from external candidates.
