About Us


We are Rutland – a unitary Council delivering all local government services for our 39,000 residents.


We provide a diverse range of services and are able to get closer to the things that really matter to the community. Our teams are made up of people with a huge range of skills from all kinds of backgrounds. We embrace the ideas of everyone who works here, no matter what their level or role, and encourage every individual to seize new opportunities whether for personal growth or for the benefit of our services. 


We want to attract the best people who will build their career with us, helping to shape services long into the future.


We're succeeding. We have a structure that enables our staff to experience a great deal of breadth and scope in their roles. We may have three directorates, but working as One Council ensures our customers remain at the heart of every decision and action agreed. We bring together our strengths, share our challenges and successes, and keep each other informed to ensure we work effectively to deliver quality services time and time again.
