Why work for Surrey
Working for Surrey means making positive and practical differences to the lives of people living and working in the county. Each one of our 23,000 staff has a unique opportunity to make Surrey a better place to live, whether it's by protecting children and people from harm, making Surrey's roads safer with accident prevention schemes or conserving our beautiful countryside.
What drives us is delivering outstanding services and by focusing on the changing needs of our residents we are achieving this. Over the last ten years, we've driven a major change programme that has revolutionised everything we do - from where we work to the services we provide.
But we want to make Surrey an even better place to live and we understand that the key to achieving this is by building a workforce that can offer a range of different skills and life experiences. In return, we promise to provide a rewarding, stimulating and challenging career path that follows the principles of openness and fairness every step of the way.
