See how our vision, values and behaviours are at the very heart of everything we do.
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 vision is to make Gloucester a city that works for everyone
Efficiency and value for money
We will strive to provide great services that are affordable for all
Forward thinking with innovation
We will adopt an entrepreneurial approach to find new and better ways to do things
Making residents lives better
We will support our communities to utilise their own strengths and assets while providing universal services and supporting our most vulnerable residents
Passionate about the city
Our enthusiasm for and pride in Gloucester will be at the heart of everything we do
Working together to make it happen
We will build strong and trusted relationships with communities and partner organisations to achieve the best outcomes for our residents
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.
