Luton a Borough Without Boundaries...

Luton is a vibrant, interesting, ever-evolving place, with many diverse communities calling our borough home. As a result, thousands of people depend on the Council's services.

As somewhere to live, Luton is inspiring and forward-thinking.

With award-winning art galleries, beautiful Chiltern views, and second-to-none transport links, there’s a lot going on here. It’s also very affordable, with house prices being below the national average.

Nestled in an area of outstanding beauty, 30 miles north of London, Luton’s got excellent road, air, and rail links. Just off the M1, moments from the M25, and close to the A1 – we’re really well connected.By train, you’re 22 minutes away from London, and just over an hour from the Midlands. Then there are our useful bus routes all around the borough, and an airport connecting you to the rest of the world.

Luton has a population of over 240,000 and one of the youngest populations in the country - a fifth of our residents are below the age of 16. Luton is also a super-diverse town - 55% of the population are non-white British. 

Luton is very proud of its diverse population which is rich in variety and produces some of the best cultural events in the UK. Luton International Carnival, the largest one-day carnival in Europe.

The town is also home to six Green Flags Parks as well as being surrounded by a large choice of leisure attractions such as Whipsnade Zoo and Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa.

Luton's strength lies in its diversity and we actively welcome people from all backgrounds. We encourage applications from all sections of our diverse community. We believe our organisation will be a better, more creative and innovative place to work if we can harness the benefit of lots of different perspectives.

We value and celebrate the diversity that exists within our community and look to see it reflected in our workforce.
