We are creating something extraordinary that impacts over half a million Londoners every single day.
We have created a unique organisation that focuses on creative service design and new ways of working in a positive and supportive working culture. We work together across services and boundaries inside and outside the Council to deliver vital public services.
We need a flexible, talented and committed public service workforce throughout the many different jobs and roles we offer.
Our workforce from the Chief Executive down is shared across the two Councils. Many services are on a journey towards becoming truly joint, whilst of course respecting the distinctive individual ambitions of each Council. Other services remain separate, notably Wandworth’s Children’s Services and Housing Management functions. Libraries, Arts and Leisure services are provided internally at Richmond and provided by GLL and Enable at Wandsworth
Both Councils have a strong track record of delivering high quality services at low cost with high levels of resident satisfaction. It is essential that we continue to maintain and improve the high standards the residents of both boroughs have become accustomed to.
The work we do is varied and different jobs require different skills, but whatever your role your work will be influenced by our commitment to our values and behaviours:
- Being open – We share views openly, honestly and in a thoughtful way. We encourage new ideas and ways of doing things. We appreciate and listen to feedback from each other.
- Being supportive - We drive the success of the organisation by making sure that our colleagues are successful. We encourage others and take account of the challenges they face. We help each other to do our jobs.
- Being positive and helpful - We keep our goals in mind and look for ways to achieve them. We listen constructively and help others see opportunities and the way forward. We have a ‘can do’ attitude and are continuously looking for ways to help each other improve.
