We hope you can find the job that's just right for you using the Search facility, which can filter by keyword, closing date, salary range, workplace, contract type or working hours. Most adverts for council posts and school vacancies carry a link to a detailed job description and person specification, as well as our online application form.

For help navigating our site, applying for jobs and Frequently Asked Questions, download our B&NES Web Recruitment User Guide for Applicants.


Before you can apply online for a vacancy, you need to create an account by setting up a username and providing an email address. An e-mail welcome message will then be sent to you with further instructions.
