When you join you'll notice a few things about us:

  • The relationships across services are great. We all work closely together on projects and service delivery.
  • We work as customer champions. Focused on meeting customer needs even in our internal teams. Customer focus is more than a core value, it's our main way of working.
  • We participate in things! Over 70% of staff complete the staff survey.We have the highest "give as you earn" participation in London. Bring your children to work days are oversubscribed. And many of our 'fit for work' benefits are staff led.
