Who are we…

Publica is a unique place to work – we’re a local government organisation with a twist! Publica wants to transform the way local services are delivered. To help do this we have started to fundamentally rethink the way we design our services in the digital era so that Publica is a customer focused organisation driven by real user needs.

With its picturesque woodlands, outdoor activities and landscapes to explore, the Forest of Dean is a great place to work. From your base in our Sustainability Team, in the planning department, you will work with a network of staff across Publica and its partner councils to deliver a range of climate emergency activity for the Forest of Dean.  

Four partner Councils (Cheltenham Borough Council, Forest of Dean, Cotswold and West Oxfordshire District Councils) have created Publica Group Ltd to deliver more efficient and improved services. The Councils will continue to be responsible for the standard of services that are provided as well as setting strategy, policy and making decisions.
