Our People vision
Our vision is to be a great place to work where diverse and talented people are enabled to be their best. We recognise that diversity and inclusion is essential to us being able to develop, adapt, innovate and progress, whilst helping us to better connect with and serve our local communities.
We know that the people who work for us are our greatest asset and when they feel valued, included, safe and supported, this positivity reaches the people we are here for – our customers and communities.

How our people feel, working for Warwickshire County Council
We have Disability Confident level 2 accreditation and are working towards our level 3. As part of this, we guarantee an interview to anyone with a disability who demonstrates through their application that they meet the essential criteria for the post.
To be considered under the Guaranteed Interview Scheme, applicants must disclose that they have a disability and would like to be considered for the scheme. This is on the declarations page of the application form. Please note that the nature of the disability, if stated on the Equal Opportunities page, will not be sent to the hiring manager. If you would like to request any adjustments or access requirements to account for your disability, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the hiring manager.
Further support is available from your work coach at Jobcentre Plus, who can advise you about programmes and grants to support you into work.
We are equally committed to the employment and career development of our employees with and without a disability.
Recruiting from the armed forces community
As part of our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant, we recognise that those leaving the armed forces may be disadvantaged in securing meaningful employment and adjusting to a civilian environment. We also recognise the contribution that members of the armed forces community can make to our organisation.
We guarantee an interview to any service person or leaver who meets the essential criteria for any post being advertised externally.
We have policies to assist reservists and cadet force adult instructors, offer work experience opportunities to personnel and their spouses or civil partners, and support spouses of serving regulars and reservists.
