Working for us

Our vision: City for All

Our City for All vision is built around our residents and every individual accessing our city. Our people are fully committed to offering the best possible services to all users and to build a city where everyone feels welcomed, supported and safe and can easily access high quality services, affordable homes and ultimately retire into local communities with dignities and pride. Everything we do as a council is meant to improve the lives of every individual in Westminster.

Our City for All is created hand in hand with our communities, to offer residents, business owners and visitors an always brighter future. This vision is underpinned by four pillars:

  • Thriving Economy
  • Greener and Cleaner
  • Vibrant Communities
  • Smart Cities

Our culture: The Westminster Way

At Westminster we foster a culture of openness, transparency and integrity, where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and develop to be the very best.

The Westminster Way is the council’s commitment to our staff and is underpinned by three pillars:

  • Personal development: Everyone has talent.
    We want everyone to thrive at Westminster and so we take the time to nurture our own talent – coaching and mentoring our people to be the very best.

  • Value our people and diversity: Everyone is valued
    We embrace our differences, to bring new perspectives to the future challenges of our city.

  • The Westminster Way of working: Everyone is a leader
    At Westminster our people are productive, ambitious, collaborative and enterprising to ensure we provide the best service to our residents. We champion modern and agile working and an open and transparent outlook to the way we work.

We are committed to attracting and recruiting the best talent and making the most of those who are already a valued member of our team.

We are passionate about putting the resources available to us to the best use, prioritising the areas of greatest need and continually seeking out new ways of working efficiently to deliver and pioneer exceptional public services.

We work together to adapt to the changing needs of our communities, resulting in a dynamic atmosphere where ambition, diversity and creativity are celebrated.

We are committed to attracting and recruiting the very best talent from the widest diverse market whilst making the most of those who are already a valued member of our team.

As a progressive and innovative organisation, we welcome applications from candidates keen on working in an agile environment with flexible conditions. At Westminster City Council, we are passionate about our aim to be an inclusive workplace for all that reflects the communities we serve, and we believe everyone is valued. We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented backgrounds, including BAME, LGBTQ+ and those with hidden or visible disabilities. We’re committed to ensuring all our staff – regardless of gender, age, religion, sexuality, ethnicity or disability – can succeed. We value diversity and appreciate that people work in different ways. So, as a Timewise employer we work to provide flexible working arrangements and an empowering environment that enables you to be your best, that is the Westminster Way.
