It's an exciting time to join us...

The 7 District and Borough Councils in North Yorkshire, along with North Yorkshire County Council, are coming together in April 2023 to form a unitary authority, North Yorkshire Council.

This is an exciting time to join us as we make the transition to one new Council, coming together to boost the services we deliver for our residents; so join us today and work in a rewarding job where you can help the people of North Yorkshire by providing vital community services. 

One unified organisation gives us the chance to further focus on the way we work, having one point of contact for all Council services across North Yorkshire. This will be simpler for our customers and will help us to continue delivering good customer service for all Council matters.  We will have local delivery sites across the county, so our jobs will be based in the places where the work needs to be – this means there will be local job opportunities close to where people live, all across North Yorkshire. 

North Yorkshire Council will offer employees a positive, supportive, flexible and inclusive working environment, committed to delivering high quality and effective services to our residents, communities and visitors. 

Whilst you are applying for a vacancy with Selby District Council, if successful, you will become an employee of this Council only up to 31 March 2023. From 1 April 2023, your employment contract will transfer to the new Council. Whilst the change to form one new organisation can bring the feeling of uncertainty, the vast majority of staff will be unaffected. 

All current and future staff should not worry, in joining us you will have job security, more so than many other employers can offer. 

All our vacancies are advertised on our website and on NYCC’s jobs and careers website. From the 1st April 2023, all vacancies for the new North Yorkshire Council can be found here.
