What it’s like to work for NLC

North Lanarkshire has a vibrant, diverse and growing economy.

The council is a special place to work, with engaged ambitious people who are ambassadors for the services they provide. Working here, every individual knows their job has an impact on our communities.

Our services are aligned to support people at every stage of their life as set out in The Plan for North Lanarkshire. We work with our partners, combining our skills and resources to make North Lanarkshire the place to Live, Learn, Work, Invest and Visit.

Structured under four services – Chief Executive’s Office, Education and Families, Enterprise and Communities and Adult Health and Social Care – we operate a collective approach to tackle the barriers to growth, reduce poverty and to open up opportunities to create more equal communities.

It’s vital that staff feel valued and our policies reflect our commitment to respecting equality and diversity in the workplace. Providing appropriate training to allow staff at any level, to achieve their own ambitions, is embedded in our work practices.

As well as competitive salaries, generous annual leave and an attractive pension scheme, there’s a great range of benefits, including our Work Well NL programme, smarter working and a new rewards and recognition scheme called NL Life.

We need talented people with drive, skills and ambition to achieve our shared ambition… are you interested? If so, you are encouraged to apply for employment opportunities with North Lanarkshire Council.

We are a Disability Confident Leader and offer a guaranteed interview to applicants who consider themselves to be disabled and who meet the essential criteria for the job.

We are also committed to providing support to members of the armed forces, veterans and their families which is set out in the Armed Forces Community Covenant.  We offer a guaranteed interview for service leavers, spouses, reservists and veterans, as long as they meet the essential criteria of the person specification/job description.

Applications are welcomed from all individuals, no matter their background, personal needs or economic circumstances.
