Working for us

At Runnymede we value our staff and the contribution everyone makes, whether they are employed in our modern Civic Offices in Addlestone or locations across the borough.

Our front line people provide services to residents in day centres or sheltered housing, maintain our parks, collect refuse and recycling and many other vital roles.

We can offer a wide variety of opportunities in a range of professions from surveying and planning to Environmental Health, Finance, Legal, Housing and Community Services to name only a few.  The working environment is friendly, informal and pleasant.
