Working at South Ayrshire Council

South Ayrshire has a wonderful environment that sets it apart from other parts of Scotland and makes it an extremely desirable place to live in, work in and visit. Situated in the South West of Scotland on the beautiful Clyde Coast, the area is home to around 112,000 people. While the majority of residents live in the coastal towns of Troon, Prestwick and Ayr, around one third live in the smaller towns of Maybole and Girvan or in rural areas stretching from Symington in the North to Ballantrae and Loch Ryan in the South.

South Ayrshire possesses beautiful scenery, both coastal and rural, as well as a wealth of cultural heritage, castles and historic buildings. These include Culzean Castle and Country Park near Maybole and the Robert Burns Birthplace and Museum and Burns Cottage in Alloway.

South Ayrshire offers an excellent transport infrastructure with easy access to Glasgow by road and rail. For those wishing to travel further afield, Prestwick International Airport offers a wide range of national and international links.

Add to this an abundance of high quality housing, from modern to traditional, urban to rural and coastal, and South Ayrshire is the ideal place to live and work.
