A large proportion of the District lies within the nationally designated landscape of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North Norfolk Heritage Coast, while the eastern part of the District forms part of the Broads National Park. The District also hosts a variety of internationally and nationally designated sites and nature reserves, home to many rare and protected species and habitats.

About Us

We're committed to promoting equality of opportunity for the people and communities of North Norfolk. We respect and value difference in our district and across our workforce, and we want everyone to feel included and able to play their part in making North Norfolk a great place to live, learn, work and visit.

Our coast and environment are really important to us. We are part of Coastal Partnership East, an organisation with responsibility for our coastline from Holkham to Felixstowe in Suffolk. We have a net zero strategy, and a team of people working to deliver these important initiatives.

As one of the largest employers in the district, we offer a number of benefits that are open to all employees. We have a really supportive culture of enabling our people to learn and grow through attending courses, e-learning, and their day to day job roles. Our office in Cromer is clean, modern and light with onsite lunchtime catering.

We have an active health and well-being group with a new strategy, mental health first aiders, domestic abuse change champions, employee assistant program, and employee discounts portal.

We have a great forum for communication with regular updates from Directors and Chief Executive, employee voice through our Staff Focus Group, and great working relationship with Unison, our onsite recognised union.

Most people that work for North Norfolk District Council are able to enjoy a great work life balance, as part of our hybrid approach to work. If your role supports hybrid working, all we ask is that you have a stable and reliable internet connection.

In terms of the numbers, if you are new to the public sector, you’ll enjoy 24 days holiday per year plus bank holidays, and when you’ve been with us for five years, this increases to 29 days (assuming the role is full time). We provide access to a great pension scheme, based on your local authority career average earnings.

Closing date: 9 September 2022.
