Our vision, values and behaviours

Gloucester City Council values are at the heart of everything we do. They underpin the way that we all work and behave and how the council plans and delivers its services.

Our behaviours

We know that our approach to our work has a direct effect on our residents and customers and how they view us, and we recognise the essential role that we each play in helping the council achieve its vision.

To embed this culture within our organisation this framework sets out the behaviours that sit alongside each job description, defining ‘how’ all Gloucester City Council employees are expected to approach their work.

The behaviours framework sets out the organisation’s expectations of you. It forms the basis for measuring and managing staff performance from the recruitment and selection process through to appraisals and 1 to 1's.

The behaviours underpin our five core values and are categorised accordingly. They are relevant and applicable to every member of staff with recognition of additional expectations for managerial roles.

Recruitment and selection

Applicants are interviewed and selected based on both skills and behavioural needs to make sure that we employ people that will make a positive contribution to our culture and achieving our vision.
