Working here

Our culture...


We care for and invest in our workforce and recognise that our employees are the council’s greatest and most valuable asset. We have a compassionate and inclusive working culture, where we are proud of our staff and recognise and value their skills, knowledge and wellbeing. We also encourage innovation and every employee has a voice to raise new ideas.

Our employees tell us that they love doing work that is meaningful and connected to something bigger – working at the council gives you an opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives.

We want to be an authority which other councils want to benchmark against and an employer of choice attracting employees from across the Midlands. You will be joining an organisation that is rewarding in every sense, and most importantly, serves our community to the highest possible standards.

Telford & Wrekin Council is a disability confident employer, is committed to equality and diversity and holds the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award.
