On 01 November 2018, it was announced by the government that the five councils in Buckinghamshire will become a single unitary authority in April 2020.  Any changes made to the structure of local authorities in the county may affect council employees in the future.  Therefore, the five councils have agreed to restrict applications to this position to current employees of the five councils for a period of seven days from this date of posting. 

External candidates are welcome to submit their application at any point; however, if a current employee applies during this seven day period, their application will be assessed prior to the council considering applications from external candidates.

If you have any questions, please contact AVDC Recruitment at recruitment@aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk

Please note that we only consider applications made via our website.

Our vision is to secure the economic, social, and environmental wellbeing of the area. Our aim is to create more business opportunities, so that ultimately we can ‘give back’ to the community. We already have success in providing extra home and garden services for sale to residents under the Limecart brand, and the business support services we offer under the Incgen brand.
