Our ambition

We're determined to make Islington fairer. To create a place where everyone, whatever their background, has the opportunity to reach their potential and enjoy a good quality of life.

We also have an ambitious goal – to be the best council in the country – with every employee clear about the part they play and inspired, focused and supported to give their very best.

We want to build an organisation where employees feel valued, inspired and empowered to help us achieve our goals and provide the best services possible to our residents.

Our values and behaviours

‘Be Islington’ is about setting a clear challenge about what it means to be an Islington employee and sets the standard for every new recruit.

We ask our employees to ‘Be Islington’ – playing their part in working together for a fairer borough and to always be collaborative, be ambitious, be resourceful, and be empowering (‘CARE’).

Islington HR is reshaping its services. We’re realigning our service provision to put digital, learning and innovation at the heart of what we do.

Our vision for a fairer Islington

We are determined to make Islington fairer. To create a place where everyone, whatever their background, has the opportunity to reach their potential and enjoy a good quality of life. We also have an ambitious goal – to be the best council in the country – with every employee clear about the part they play and inspired, focused, and supported to give their very best.

Our priorities

To help bring our vision to life we have four clear objectives:

1A decent home for everyone: building new council homes, being a good landlord, standing up for private renters, and preventing homelessness

2A local economy that works for everyone: supporting people into decent and secure jobs and training, creating an economy that works for all, and ensuring young people have the best possible start 

3A safe place for everyone and everyone playing their part: reducing the spread of Covid-19 and supporting those who need our help, working with partners to cut crime and ASB, tackling complex problems, and championing and celebrating our diversity

 4A greener, cleaner, healthier place to live: keeping Islington clean and tidy, encouraging greener travel, cleaning up the air we breathe, and tackling the climate crisis by committing to a net zero carbon Islington by 2030.

Delivering fairness has been an increasing challenge not least because of government cuts to our budget over the last ten years. We’ve continued to make strides towards our goal, but the devastating impact of Covid-19 has laid bare the deep inequalities that still exist in our borough and we are focused on working hard to rebuild a fairer Islington in the coming years.

We want to build upon an organisation where employees feel valued, inspired and empowered to help us achieve our goals and provide the best services possible to our residents.

We are also committed to establishing a ‘Be Islington’ work ethic where we ask our employees to play their part in working together for a fairer borough.

We are continually looking for people who are able to work collaboratively, are ambitious, resourceful and able to empower others to help us shape the face of a 21st century HR Department.

Islington HR is reshaping its services. We’re realigning our service provision to put digital, learning and innovation at the heart of what we do. We’re creating 3 new functions – HR Customer Delivery, Organisational Development and Strategic HR Partnering. Our vision is to be a trusted professional partner, empowering our managers and people to thrive and deliver better services for Islington.  By joining the team, you’ll play a vital role in enabling this, putting fairness and equality at the heart of everything we do – in our communities and our workplace.
