A great place to work

One of our many strengths as an organisation is our staff and their commitment to give Sandwell people the very best. We already have the Investors in People silver award, but we are committed to ensuring that we have the right type of environment and culture to enable creativity and collaboration to flourish. A skilled, diverse, motivated and healthy workforce is key to this success.

We already have successful work experience, apprenticeship, intern and graduate programmes and we will promote these to local people.

We will create a modern workplace and give staff technological tools that encourage creativity, collaboration and transformation. This will be achieved through our Workplace Vision programme, Technology Modernisation programme and Oracle project.

We want our staff to be highly skilled and we will invest in a range of opportunities, qualifications and experiences for our workforce. We will continue the roll-out of our leadership development programmes to create Sandwell’s leaders of the future.

We take the health and wellbeing of our employees very seriously and offer staff an extensive occupational health service and support. Building on our recently introduced mental health toolkit, we will continue to grow our support to staff and managers to achieve positive mental health.
