Making a difference 

We all use council services every day. If you work for ̳, what you do will make a difference – you will be supporting the day-to-day lives, and longer term future, of our communities. 

We provide a huge, diverse range of services that offer a career path for many different professions, skills and roles. And in Argyll and Bute, we deliver services that many other councils do not, such as air and ferry services.

Classroom assistant, accountant, lawyer, planner, social worker, teacher, surveyor, administrator, driver, environmental health officer – these are just some of the many roles we employ to support the people, businesses and communities of Argyll and Bute.  

And working with us will mean you can take pride in being part of an award-winning council team – our employees are regularly recognised nationally for their innovation and success. 

Building a rewarding career with us 

We value our employees. So whether you are starting out in your career or looking for promotion, we provide excellent terms and conditions, as well as learning opportunities to help you move into new roles with us if you wish.

One of our Executive Directors for example joined us as a Clerical Assistant within the Finance Department and now has one the most senior roles in the council. We create new roles as required to meet changing business needs, for example we employ two Climate Change Officers to progress our ambitions for climate-friendly Argyll and Bute.
