The Council is a caring employer and has achieved the Investors in People standard. We are committed to learning and development to support employees to develop their skills and offer a range of benefits and working arrangements to help people achieve work/life balance. We recognise and encourage initiative, excellent work and standards, we are committed to communicating and listening to staff, and to promoting equality and valuing diversity.
