Perth & Kinross Council recognises the importance of having the right people at the right time with the right skills, abilities and attitudes to fulfil our aim of delivering excellent services to the communities we serve.
To help us achieve this, the Council aims to attract and retain employees who are committed to delivering excellent public services and making us a dynamic and innovative Council.
We aim to provide employment opportunities on a fair and equal basis and creating a working environment for all employees that is safe, accessible, and free from harassment or discrimination and which values and respects each individual's identities and cultures.
To this end, an Equalities Impact Assessment was undertaken to ensure the Council was meeting its statutory obligations with regard to our recruitment processes. Like other councils across Scotland, Perth & Kinross Council is now using the Scottish Local Government Recruitment Portal to advertise vacancies and manage applications.
