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 14 days from 23rd July to 6th August. External candidates are welcome to submit their application at any point; however, if a current employee applies during this 14 day period, their application will be assessed prior to the council considering applications from external candidates.

Please note that we only consider applications made via our website

About Us

AVDC is at the forefront of changing the way that local authorities work in the future. The council is a multi-award winning and highly successful authority that recognised that local government funding was set to change for good. We have adopted a more commercial approach where we strive to generate income streams and find more cost effective ways of operating. Achieving our goal of being 100% in the cloud we calculate has saved us £6m over five years.

Our vision is to secure the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the area. Our aim is to create more business opportunities, so that ultimately we can ‘give back’ to the community.

We pride ourselves on offering a fantastic, family friendly place to work. We promote flexible working with many opportunities for learning and development, along with an attractive benefits package. We have a state of the art head office at The Gateway, with easy access and free parking.

As an ambitious council with a strong culture based on clearly defined values, underpinned by a commercial behavioural framework, we are looking for enthusiastic, commercially-minded, motivated people to be part of our team.
