Working in South Gloucestershire
South Gloucestershire Council is a successful and well-led unitary authority with mainly above average performance and good levels of resident satisfaction. The council was described in a recent peer review by the Local Government Association as ‘well-led with strong, political and managerial leadership and a track record for delivering its priorities’. It has excellent member/officer relationships with a ‘can do’ attitude.
The council is a high-growth area with generally low levels of deprivation, but with this growth comes a continuing challenge to ensure infrastructure keeps pace with development.
