Council jobs

Temporary council jobs

As part of the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities (AGMA), we use ​Reed to help us recruit to some of the temporary vacancies within Rochdale Borough Council.

To be considered for any of these vacancies you'll need to be registered with Reed themselves, or a recruitment agency that has an agreement with Reed. Your local recruitment agency will be able to advise you if they have an agreement in place with Reed to supply agency workers to AGMA.

Reed, or the recruitment agency, will give you details of their terms and agreements and what the next steps are. If you're successful in gaining employment the recruitment agency will be your employer.​
