Strong communities are at the heart of everything we do. Whether town, city or smallest hamlet, each comes with its own unique challenges and opportunities.

Communities is a broad job area, and could see you working in a variety of roles. We employ people to help develop local businesses and social enterprises, help preserve our county’s ecology and protect residents from scams and faulty goods. Being such a large county, we are in the position of dealing with rural, urban and coastal communities and the issues they face.
