Jobs and careers at Cumbria County Council

Local Government Reorganisation

From 1 April 2023 local government in Cumbria will change as we move towards Local Government reorganisation. The current 6 district councils and Cumbria County Council will be replaced by 2 new unitary authorities - Westmorland and Furness Council and Cumberland Council.

If you're employed by Cumbria County Council before 1 April 2023, you will be transferred to one of the 2 new councils unless you're on a temporary contract which expires before 31 March 2023. If this is the case, please speak to the hiring manager for more information.
