Who we are

Telford & Wrekin Council is a great place to work, where colleagues are valued and ambition is embraced. 

We absolutely know our colleagues are the council’s greatest and most valuable asset, so we do our best to invest in the workforce, promoting and nurturing development whenever we can.

This means having the right people, with the right skills, in the right roles so we can get on with delivering the excellent services that residents and businesses in the borough expect from us. 

And because we have a culture of innovation, every employee is encouraged and empowered to bring fresh ideas to the table.

It’s because our employees are at the heart of the council that we work hard to attract, train and retain the very best people. We do this by providing clear career pathways, with support and development to make sure we encourage, grow and make best use of the talent and skills that we have.

We have a mission that matters – to protect, care and invest to create a better borough


To support this we have happy and passionate teams who feel trusted by leaders and managers to deliver this ambition, alongside a flexible approach to help maintain a healthy work/life balance. We respect that whilst being at work really matters, it’s just as important that everyone is happy and fulfilled outside of work too. It’s a win/win and as a result our employees feel valued and supported and proud to work for us.

Diversity and inclusion


We want our workforce to represent the diversity of the communities we serve. The richness of this diversity means we can better understand needs and deliver excellent, appropriate services, as well as supporting employees.

So we celebrate having a diverse and inclusive culture where people are able to be themselves at work, and everyone has a voice and we know we are stronger and better connected as a result.

We are also a disability confident employer, awarded in recognition of our commitment to recruiting and retaining people with disabilities or other health conditions. This shows that we go the extra mile to make sure disabled people get a fair chance, and aim to create more accessible jobs and a more inclusive workforce.
