An image of council staff.

We are proud of every employee and their continuous hard work, dedication and commitment to improve both our City and the Council.

Our vision is that we will continue to be a confident, capable Council and a leading authority both regionally and nationally. Our mission is to work as one to serve our City.

We know our employees are our biggest assets and for us to continue on our transformational journey we know we need them to feel:


Employees that have the freedom, resources, structures and processes to enable us to deliver against our personal objectives in a creative and innovative fashion.


Employees that can work flexibly with a range of internal and external partners, adjusting as necessary to meet the prevailing requirements.


Employees who feel the Council invests in them in terms of their professional development and personal wellbeing and are appreciated for the work they do.

Employee engagement is an important factor within our organisation and we want to ensure that every employee has the opportunity to be heard. We conduct regular employee surveys and hold a number of equality forums meetings such as Gender, Maternity and Paternity, LGBT+, Disability and Age and Race, Religion and Belief.

Our People Strategy is also built on extensive employee engagement and reflects the priorities that are important to our employees. We will continue to focus on our strategy over the coming years and our employees will continue to help shape it.

Together we are making a real difference to the City we serve and you can be part of our transformational journey!
