Stoke-on-Trent is a city built on a history of industrial greatness and creative artistic flair. In recent years we’ve seen something of a resurgence of many of the things that made the city great. From pottery to performing arts and everything in between, we’re home to world-class museums, outstanding visitor centres, glorious gardens, fantastic factory tours, creative hands-on opportunities... we have it all!

In this last period, we have secured well over £100 million of investment to realise our ambitious regeneration plans.  Our goal is to define and deliver a better shared future for our citizens by reducing inequalities and enriching our communities through improvements to health and social care, housing, transport, economic development, environmental sustainability and enhanced family support. We are determined that people born in Stoke-on-Trent will have the best start in life and enjoy opportunities to build healthy, happy and productive lives based around fair employment, sustainable places and a healthy standard of living.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council is a unitary authority employing approximately 4,600 staff who deliver 700 services to more than 260,000 residents. Our city comprises of six towns: Burslem, Fenton, Hanley, Longton, Stoke and Tunstall. We are a city of strengths, with a proud heritage and bright future. We have undergone significant changes over the last few years. New ways of working have already transformed many service areas and we are determined to continue to develop more innovative approaches to ensure that we can maximise the benefits of transformation.

We are embracing technological innovation to improve the way we communicate with our customers and we will use the insights we gain to help shape future changes and ensure that we deliver responsive, joined-up services which are sufficiently outcome-focused to achieve our strategic priorities. Our approach is work in partnership wherever possible, deep in local communities. The City Council has a fantastic team of dedicated council members and officers who are passionate and ambitious about our brilliant city and its future. We have an enthusiastic, experienced and effective senior management team with a dynamic and ambitious political leadership – none of whom are afraid to challenge.
