About our work

We’re proud to work together for the people of Edinburgh, making a positive difference to the City and the lives of our residents every single day. We’re committed to creating a workplace where our people are supported and recognised for their contribution to that purpose.

Founded on Our Behaviours of Respect, Integrity and Flexibility, we’re creating a great place to work that

  • is open, positive, inclusive and safe
  • supports and allows everyone to be their best self and do their best work
  • celebrates the benefits of our diversity
  • ensures everyone feels trusted, valued, heard, and recognised.

Our HR Team is dedicated to delivering this vision by engaging and supporting our colleagues to

  • think differently about the way they work so we can deliver our Council priorities in a way that provides the best value for our residents 
  • shape our organisational vision and priorities by speaking up and getting involved
  • achieve a healthy work/life balance and prioritise their wellbeing
  • help build an inclusive work environment where we embrace equality and diversity.

Our People Strategy 2021-2024 outlines the ways we’re focussed on helping our colleagues to be more agile, more empowered, and more connected to our residents’ lives and communities.

As a member of our HR Team, you would have a key role in helping to shape and deliver our new People Strategy 2024 to 2027.
