Jobs and Careers
There can be no greater advertisement for Milton Keynes than the thousands of businesses that have developed here and those that have chosen to locate here over the years. This is reflected by the fact we are the number one City for job creation in the UK.
In addition to this over the next few years Milton Keynes will become the largest city in the south of England after London as it expands by 28,000 homes. On average stats have shown that people living in Milton Keynes can save up to £12,000 per year. Yet only 33 minutes away from London and situated right next to the M1.
We at Milton Keynes Council take great pride in our city and we are always looking for people that can help us grow and share our vision. Aside from our exciting career opportunities we also place a strong emphasis on the innovative package benefits we provide, learn more about MK Advantage, and a healthy work life balance that we feel sets us apart from the rest!
