Executive Recruitment

How we work

Our values will help us to achieve the Council's aims and objectives. They will help us to make Manchester a place where people choose to live, and where companies want to invest. Our values underpin the way we operate as an organisation. They influence our choices and our behaviours - they are the thread running through everything we do.

Our workforce is an integral part of achieving the Councils vision and delivering the city's strategy Our Manchester.

This isn't just about what the organisation achieves but how we all behave and work together to make our vision a reality.

Behaviours demonstrate our attitude and approach; they are how we do things, how we treat others, what we say and how we say it, and how we expect to be treated.

The Our Manchester behaviours are;

  • We are proud and passionate about Manchester
  • We take time to listen and understand
  • We 'own it' and we are not afraid to try new things
  • We work together and trust each other

Every employee of the council is expected to demonstrate  these behaviours no matter what role they do, or where they work, everyone has their part to play in shaping the culture of our organisation.
