We have a wide and diverse range of career opportunities available, from planning and engineering, to finance, human resources, information technology and social care.

Our vision is to build a community in which all can take part and all can take pride. Our 5 core staff values reinforce the vision and provide the underlying context to the way in which we do our work.


  • better together - we work collaboratively with colleagues and  partners, recognising that everything we do is for the benefit of our residents
  • less judgement, more empathy - we treat people with respect rather than making assumptions about their needs or behaviour
  • no decision about me, without me - we believe that everyone has the right to be involved in decisions that affect them


  • think for ourselves and take initiative rather than waiting to be told what to do
  • consider options carefully and make judgements, and then we take ownership of our decisions, knowing the risks
  • always act with integrity and can be trusted to do what we say we are going to do
  • hold ourselves and our colleagues to account
  • take responsibility for continuing to learn and trying to be better at what we do
  • care about our impact on each other, our partners and our environment


  • think creatively, look for solutions and solve problems
  • always looking for new ideas, learning from our own experiences, each other, and the best in the world
  • actively try new things - we understand that mistakes create opportunities to learn and we manage the risks that arise


  • passionate about everyone having the best opportunities
  • carefully consider the impact of our decisions, and we always seek to act fairly
  • recognise that equality is about understanding that people are different and have different strengths as well as needs, rather than simply treating everyone the same
