Working and living in Lancashire

Sitting at the heart of the UK transport network, Lancashire is a delightful mix of bustling towns and cities with a rich history of industry and creativity, sitting alongside peaceful, picturesque countryside and magnificent coastlines. Lancashire is a great place to live and work.

The heart of Lancashire will also further its status as one of the fastest growing locations in the UK over the next decade – thanks to the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal. The once-in-a-lifetime funding programme will create thousands of new jobs and homes, while increasing the size of the local economy by £1 billion.

If you'd like to play your part in Lancashire's exciting future we have a wide range of roles available across social care, children's services, customer access, libraries, museums, education, roads and transport, environment, planning and economic growth. We look forward to receiving your application.
