Introduction to Coventry City Council

About the Council

Coventry City Council provides hundreds of essential services to over 360,000 residents, with a workforce of over 6,500 staff including maintained schools. We have a host of locations throughout the city offering collaborative workspaces for our employees to lead on the delivery of our objectives, with our main office spaces located in the heart of the city centre.

More than half of our staff work directly with the public delivering vital services such as; Care Workers, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Refuse Collection, Libraries Teams, Teachers and Youth Workers.

The recent investment and development in Coventry has breathed new life into the city. Winning the title for UK City of Culture 2021 has created a huge buzz and the regeneration that has already happened, and will continue to, has transformed the city centre and surrounding areas which will leave a lasting legacy. We were the European City of Sport in 2019 and have a vital role to play in the 2022 Commonwealth games for which we are proud to be a host city.

Our aims and objectives

As a council with improvement at its heart, we’re committed to making life better for the people who live and work in Coventry. We’re equally concerned with the quality of life enjoyed by our people, so by joining us, you won’t just be helping the community, you’ll be helping yourself too.

We genuinely believe that Coventry City Council is a special place. You will be joining during an exciting time to become part of a team that contributes to achieving our visions for the city and meeting the objectives set out in our One Coventry Plan.

The One Coventry Plan outlines the fundamental building blocks which we aim to put in place to help our city grow and people do well. Our staff and partners are dedicated to making the most of our opportunities to help improve people’s lives, especially the most vulnerable. Our key strategies are;

  • Globally Connected: Promoting the growth of a sustainable Coventry economy. Our initiatives include our tourism strategy, sports strategy, local plan and cultural strategy.
  • Locally Committed: Improving the quality of life for Coventry people. These are our key strategies focusing on children and young people, education, health and wellbeing, marmot, social care, waste, recycling and street scene
  • Delivering our priorities: with fewer resources, making the most of our assets and working with residents, communities and partners, enabling people to do more for themselves.
