Sedgemoor, located in the heart of Somerset and the wider South West, is an excellent location for both employment and as a place to live. The area boasts splendid scenery with the Quantock and Mendip Hills, the Somerset Levels and an extensive coastline.
It is a highly accessible district with first class transport links including the M5, and the cities of Bristol and Exeter within easy reach. Sedgemoor District Council is an ambitious and pro-business authority, well on the way to transforming how we provide services to our customers and how we work by embracing new technology. In support of this vision we are also seeking to carve out a more strategic focus on Human Resources, Organisational Development and Learning.
