Our ambition is to be an outstanding and well-run council which provides great services and opportunities for East Devon – now and for future generations.

Our priorities that will help us to do this are:

- Outstanding place and environment
- Outstanding homes and communities
- Outstanding level of economic growth, productivity and prosperity
- Outstanding council and council services


At East Devon District Council our ambition is to be an outstanding and well-run council. As a Platinum Investor in People, making this an outstanding place to work is also at the very top of our agenda.

Our relocation to Blackdown House in Honiton, investment in new mobile technologies and a flexible approach means that staff can achieve a great work life balance as well as meeting the needs and expectations of our customers.

As an innovative and forward thinking Council we offer a range of exciting career opportunities across a diverse range of services.

Better still, you’ll be working in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, with award-winning beaches and stunning scenery – which includes two Areas of Natural Beauty (AONB).

In addition to great learning and development opportunities, you’ll also enjoy a wide range of employee benefits and be surrounded by dynamic and committed teams all striving to provide the very best for the people of the East Devon District.


In our last Staff Engagement Survey, 93% of respondents said they would recommend EDDC as a place to work.

People are our most valuable asset. We know that through great teamwork, our staff ensure excellent services are delivered to our community. For this reason, we are committed to recruiting the best and continuing to invest in learning and development.

This commitment has led to us being awarded the Investors in People Platinum standard in 2020.

As a people-centric organisation, we recognise the needs of individuals and create opportunities for part time working, job sharing and flexible working. We also operate a flexi-time scheme for most posts.


Our guiding principles and values underpin everything we do. They set out how we will go about our day to day work.

We will:

- promote equal access and inclusivity for everyone in East Devon
- regularly consult and engage with our communities on key issues and service changes – particularly when we run regeneration projects and activities that involve our tenants
- support initiatives which specifically promote the health and well-being of our residents providing help and advice at the earliest opportunity
- deliver quality, accessible services – a great service, first time and every time
- be open, clear and transparent
- treat others and their opinions with respect at all times
- work towards reducing our carbon footprint and enhancing our environment
- operate as one council team
