We strongly believe in properly rewarding the hard work and commitment that we expect from our people. This goes beyond just pay - this is about doing everything we can to ensure that your physical and mental health are protected, as well as making sure you have every opportunity to enjoy a proper work/life balance.
Whowe're looking for
As a Council, we want to have a workforce that is representative of the diverse communities that we serve, and we recognise the value of the variety of skills, knowledge and perspectives that a diverse workforce brings.
We don’t want anyone to think ‘the Council doesn’t hire people like me’ and we are committed to making our recruitment practices as inclusive as possible for everyone. We have no pre-conceptions on where the right person for this role comes from, or what they look like. However, you will find that all of our people share similar qualities. We come to work with a can-do attitude, ready to get involved and deliver the best possible services. We’re respectful and open-minded and work together to achieve our goals.
Above all else, we come to work to mark our mark and to genuinely make a difference – if this sounds like you then apply today!
Workforce,Diversity and Inclusion policy
We've created friendly, welcoming workplaces where everyone is working towards the same cause, providing the best possible services for the city of Coventry. We are committed to ensuring that the principles of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are the foundation for all that we do and the way that we do it. We view diversity as a strength to be harnessed and aim to create an inclusive workplace culture that respects and values difference in order to provide the best possible services for the city of Coventry.
You'll find that every person at Coventry City Council has a different story to tell - stories of how they joined us, how they've grown and developed since they did and what they're hoping for in their future career at the Council. Nothing makes us happier than knowing each individual feels that they made the right decision in joining the Council and are excited about what their future with us will bring.
We understand that everyone's personal situation and preferences are different - this is why we have been implementing a range of ways that our people can work flexibly to match their individual circumstances. Whether this is the ability to work remotely, the opportunity to work a nine-day fortnight or hours to suit your personal needs.
We pride ourselves on having a culture of respect and inclusivity, one where difference is recognised and celebrated. Across our many services and sites you will find a welcoming and supportive working environment where everyone looks out for each other, all working together towards the same goals.
