Workforce strategy

Our workforce strategy is the council's plan to make sure we have the right people doing the right things.


To be an employer of choice, demonstrated by a highly performing diverse workforce, capable of managing and planning innovative and financially robust service delivery to enable the city to grow and ensure every child, citizen and place matters.


The Council Plan sets out a clear vision for the future and enables us to define a strategic approach to how we will develop our current and future workforce with the right skills, environment and culture to enable the council to deliver, with declining resources, our outcomes.


The Workforce Strategy 2018-2022 provides a framework to all staff by providing direction on; workforce planning, performance, learning and development, leadership and management, engagement reward and wellbeing.


The delivery of the strategy will enable the council to develop a high performing workforce, composed of diverse, skilled, adaptable, engaged, empowered and creative teams. Our structures will bring us closer to our customers where a solution focused approach is supported by a modern and progressive organisational culture.

We will deliver effective and efficient services, underpinned by core values and behaviours, ensuring a great city to grow up, live, succeed and grow old in, as outlined in our priority outcomes.
