Like any large organisation, we rely on our professional and supporting staff to ensure our operation runs smoothly and delivers the services people need.

Devon County Council:

Employs over 4,000 direct staff

Invests over 100,000 each year on major infrastructure

Has a gross budget of £1.1 billion

Like any organisation that deals with such large figures, we require a team of lawyers, accountants and human resources officers to ensure the smooth running of our service.

Being a local authority, there are also roles that one might not commonly find elsewhere. We employ people in Democratic Support to assist with the business of elected representatives and scrutiny committees, registrars to keep official records of the county’s population and a coroner and assistants to deal with inquests into individual deaths.

We are a large organisation dealing with complex matters across the county, and welcome anyone who can bring their expertise to our council.
