As an area, Bracknell Forest has much to offer. It’s a thriving Borough that is currently benefitting from development growth and a regenerated town centre bringing an abundance of new retail outlets, restaurants, cafes and leisure opportunities. Though much of its centre is modern, Bracknell has a strong historic background. Once part of the Windsor Great Forest, it still nestles in woodlands; one fifth of the borough is forest, with another fifth protected for its high wildlife value including ten sites of specific scientific interest.
Located in the heart of the Thames Valley and close to Reading, the town of Bracknell has excellent road and rail links to all areas of the UK, with the council office situated within two minutes’ walk of the station. There is also nearby parking, making it extremely accessible.
Bracknell Forest Council prides itself on being an excellent employer. We offer a fantastic range of benefits including flexible and agile working arrangements, as well as learning and development opportunities, which will offer the chance to develop and progress your career.
