Working With Us

We employ a total of 31,800 people:

  • 8,400 in Council departments
  • 23,500 in school and social care roles

We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to effective service delivery and are currently mid-way through our pioneering Transformation Programme “Council for the Future”.

We understand the value of employee engagement and were one of the first employers to adopt a radical approach to flexible working patterns. We also have an award-winning internal staff campaign “Healthy Herts”. Through this initiative we offer advice and guidance to our employees on how to boost their physical and mental wellbeing and promote a healthy work-life balance. For more information about what’s on offer for staff, scroll down to our “Rewards and Benefits” section.

We have an ongoing commitment to the training and development of our staff and in 2014 our Learning and Organisational Development team won an HR Excellence Award for Best Learning and Development Strategy. Further details about this can be found in the “Training and Development” section below.

If you’re looking to start a career within an organisation that nurtures talent, rewards success and values the individual, we would welcome an application from you.

Hertfordshire Councty Council has once again been recognied as one of the best employers for lesbian, gay and bisexual staff in the country in the latest Stonewall Workplace Equality Index. The council is ranked 59th in the annual Top 100 index and is one of only 14 local authorities to make the list.

We were assessed on our employee policies, staff engagement, learning and development support and external and community engagement. Competition was very strong this year with 397 organisations entering the index.

Darryl Keen, Fire and Rescue Service Assistant Chief Officer Service Support, who is the outgoing Diversity Board champion for our LGBT network said: “I am really pleased that we have got this recognition. Our improved score in the index acknowledges the hard work the county council puts into its equality policies and the role the LGBT Network has in helping all staff to thrive at work. We are committed to ensuring we remain an employer that both our current staff and future employees really want to work for."
