Why work for us


We are proud of our 'one team' culture where everyone contributes to delivering great services to our local community and residents.

We offer a great working environment, flexible working options, many benefits and development opportunities, as well as the chance to improve the lives of East Herts residents.

We are 'One Team'. We don't just state our values, we live them. These values define the relationship between the council and its people, and underpin our approach to performance, reward and well-being:

  • Here to help
  • We work together
  • We aim high

By demonstrating our corporate values in everything we do, we not only make a real difference to our local communities but also for our staff and their progression.

In addition to our values, we are proud to have a supportive working culture with strong staff groups that support each other such as our carers' support group, mental health first aiders, and buddy programme.

We encourage creativity and ideas to improve the delivery of services and working environment, and our regular all staff briefings, staff suggestion scheme and monthly staff recognition award ensure we continue working together as one team.

Equality and Diversity

However you identify yourself, whatever community you come from, we want the skills and commitment you have to bring. We want to work with you as an individual to help plan and support your career growth at East Herts. We're determined to break down barriers. We want East Herts to be a great place to work, learn and be able to contribute for everybody.
