1. About us

Most local authorities will say that they are undertaking transformation in one shape or form. In Exeter we not only believe we are a leading place based on economic growth, but also due to the work we do with our partners and the local authorities that surround us.

Strategic partnerships are at the forefront of what we do. We have ambitious plans to make Exeter both an analytical city and the global leading location for applied environmental science.

Our Population growth is the fastest in the country and our economic growth has reached transformational levels.

As an organisation you’ll find that we are outward facing – for us a lot of the work we do is based around place. Internally, we are changing our organisation to be more commercially focussed as changes in local government finances abound.

We are also working with Exeter City Futures towards energy independence for the city and to be congestion free by 2025.

At the same time we are focusing on the city centre as a place for investment and growth – creating a thriving and lively heart to support our growth in numbers of knowledge based works and our already thriving communities.

Exeter is a very dynamic city, we are very clear about the direction we need to follow, and we have a solid track record of growth. We are the regional capital for a reason. Now Exeter is on the cusp of recognition globally and we are looking for talented people to be part of what we are achieving as a city.
