Our culture

By working with us, you are part of something bigger. From supporting residents who are at the heart of what we do, to shaping our county for now and future generations – as a Buckinghamshire Council employee, you contribute to the local community, whatever your role.

As one of the biggest local authorities in the UK, we are part of a network of partners spanning both public and private sectors. Our work matters, and together, we can achieve big things.

Our services are wide-ranging. From Accounting to Zoo Licensing and the opportunities to grow and progress are endless. Everyone has a voice and we listen, which is why regular communications and staff-led networks are so important to us.

We have a set of values, which our employees have chosen, that represent what we are – Proud, Ambitious, Collaborative and Trustworthy.

As a Buckinghamshire Council employee, you can expect:

  • a fair and inclusive culture
  • the chance to really make a difference to those around you
  • health and well-being initiatives including an Employee Assistance Programme, Mental Health First Aiders and mindfulness workshops
  • a unified voice through our Employee Representative Group
  • ongoing support, and the opportunity to develop and progress in your career with us
  • opportunities to take part in fun activities such as fundraising and social events

Work styles

We recognise that one size doesn't fit all, especially with such a diverse workforce.

All of our roles are assigned a different work style to help us get the best out of every individual. Whether your role is ‘fixed’, ‘on-the-go’, ‘mobile’ or ‘any desk’, we’ll provide you with the tools and equipment needed to carry out your role effectively.

Where roles allow, we will look to achieve a hybrid way of working with the majority of staff working remotely for at least 60% of the working week.
