A warm welcome from day one.
Making your day
While we’re proud of our heritage, we’re just as excited about what we’ll create. Through a regeneration programme, we’re building new schools, and our reputation as a logistics and technology hub. We are transforming the town into a thriving retail and leisure destination. Join us and you’ll help to make it all possible – whether you’re in Elections or Engineering, Recycling or Revenues.
And while you’re busy making Daventry’s day, we’ll make yours. We’re flexible, family-friendly and nice people to collaborate with. We’re debt-free, always improving, and guided by clear vision from our leaders. We’ll give you the work-life balance you need to make the most of Daventry – and family life.
It’s why staff love working here, and why we’re honoured to have been awarded a Silver Investors in People (IIP) accreditation. IIP is a nationally recognised standard for commitment to employee development and business performance, and ‘Silver’ is only awarded to the top five percent of organisations assessed. In particular, IIP assessors praised our ‘culture of universal and strong professional pride’, as well as the resilience and flexibility that ensure we’re ready to take on whatever the future has in store.
