Thank you for your interest in working for
Cranbrook Town Council.

Cranbrook is a town being developed from scratch in East Devon on land which used to be green fields. Construction works started in 2011 and during the following year, the first residents moved in. By the middle of 2022, the town had grown to approximately 6,000 residents occupying 2,600 or so properties. The current Local Plan makes provision for the delivery of circa 8,000 homes housing in the region of 25,000 residents – so Cranbrook will be at least a medium-sized town and probably the second-biggest settlement in the whole of Devon.

Cranbrook Town Council was created as a local authority in May 2015 serving East Devon’s youngest community in response to the new town being built. Since then, the Council has completed a number of asset and service transfers to it, including a multi-purpose building; play areas; a 35-hectare Country Park and nature reserve; grounds maintenance covering all areas of public open space in the town; litter picking; bin emptying; community development work and a youth service – and is currently working on the delivery of a sports pavilion at the Ingrams sports pitches, the delivery of new play areas, the delivery of the town centre in Cranbrook, among other areas of work.

We are currently looking to recruit the following position:
