What our people say about us

John, ICT Development Assistant - joined January 2017

'There are some amazing people here who are only too happy to share their knowledge & expertise. This quickly helped me to settle in to what has proved to be a golden opportunity.' 

Damian, Grounds Maintenance Operative, Williamson Park - joined August 2017

‘A big attraction for me was the training and the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills you just wouldn’t get access to elsewhere. I also like the flexibility I have in the job. The senior management team is really supportive of what we do – the trust and respect we get here means a lot.’

Emma, Zoo Keeper, Williamson Park - joined July 2016

‘One of the great things about working here is we’re always encouraged to come up with new ideas. Seeing those ideas come to life is really satisfying. And as a life-long Mancunian I also love Lancaster as a place to live and work – it’s relaxed, friendly, less frantic… and we’re near the coast!’

Lynsey, Customer Services Advisor – joined October 2013

‘I love my job – I get a real buzz from helping our residents and the local community. We have a great team spirit here and support each other brilliantly. Flexible working patterns mean that my work/life balance is just right and the discounted staff membership for Salt Ayre Leisure Centre is a real plus. I’ve recommended the council as a place to work to my friends which says it all.‘ 

Flo, Planning & Building Technician – joined August 2017

‘Lancaster City Council is a really nice place to work. The team were very welcoming and the training enabled me to make a positive contribution early on. Flexitime is great too – perfect for a local Mum working full time!’

Andrew, Planning Assistant - joined August 2015

'I'd worked abroad previously but wanted to come back to the Lancaster area - it’s a good place to live & work. The mentoring and support from the team here has been fantastic….there are a lot of benefits working for LCC you just don't get elsewhere.'
