We provide a diverse range of services and are able to get closer to the things that really matter to the community.
Our teams are made up of people with a huge range of skills from diverse backgrounds. We embrace the ideas of everyone who works here, no matter what their level or role, and encourage every individual to seize new opportunities whether for personal growth or for the benefit of our services. We want to attract the best people who will build their career with us, helping to shape services long into the future.
This is what our staff say
We're succeeding and constantly developing here at Rutland County Council. We have a structure that enables our staff to experience a great deal of breadth and scope in their roles. We may have three directorates but working as One Council ensures our customers remain at the heart of every decision and action agreed. We regularly meet as a staff group for our "All Staff Conversation" to ensure staff are kept up to date and have the opportunity to openly bring discussion points to the table. We bring together our strengths, share our challenges and successes, and keep each other informed to ensure we work effectively to deliver quality services time and time again.
Our employees are important to us and we acknowledge their contribution supports Rutland in being the fantastic County it is. We have a current set of values that are embedded across the organisation – from recruitment, through induction, your one-to-ones and your professional and personal development. Our values also shape our approach to providing services to our stakeholders in Rutland.
As part of our commitment to development and making Rutland County Council an excellent place to work, we are in the process of updating our corporate values alongside our new corporate plan. All employees have been invited to take part in this review and have contributed towards creating new and improved corporate values. The new values will be shared in due course.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Rutland County Council make it their priority to make sure our services are fully inclusive for our community, and to do that we want to ensure we have a diverse workforce. Rutland County Council is wholly committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, reflecting the communities we serve, and we do all we can to ensure we continue to be at the forefront of confronting racism and discrimination in whatever form it shows itself.
RCC wants to ensure that customers who access our services, job seekers and employees are treated fairly and without unlawful discrimination. We promote a culture where people of all backgrounds and experiences are welcomed, respected and valued.
As an employer, we strive to build an inclusive environment where people's differences are valued, and where all colleagues are able to be themselves at work and able to reach their full potential.
We are proud to have a successful Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Group who write bi-monthly newsletters that celebrate EDI and they also run regular events such as fundraisers, training and staff get togethers. Our Inclusion Champions meet every three weeks, and anyone is welcome to join us in developing EDI across the Council.
