Our ambition

We're determined to make Islington fairer. To create a place where everyone, whatever their background, has the opportunity to reach their potential and enjoy a good quality of life.

We also have an ambitious goal – to be the best council in the country – with every employee clear about the part they play and inspired, focused and supported to give their very best.

We want to build an organisation where employees feel valued, inspired and empowered to help us achieve our goals and provide the best services possible to our residents.

Our values and behaviours

‘Be Islington’ is about setting a clear challenge about what it means to be an Islington employee and sets the standard for every new recruit.

We ask our employees to ‘Be Islington’ – playing their part in working together for a fairer borough and to always be collaborative, be ambitious, be resourceful, and be empowering (‘CARE’).


Islington HR is reshaping its services. We’re realigning our service provision to put digital, learning and innovation at the heart of what we do. We’re creating 3 new functions – HR Customer Delivery, Organisational Development and Strategic HR Partnering. Our vision is to be a trusted professional partner, empowering our managers and people to thrive and deliver better services for Islington.  By joining the team, you’ll play a vital role in enabling this, putting fairness and equality at the heart of everything we do – in our communities and our workplace.

As part of our changes, we have an exciting 6 month opportunity available in our team to drive forward our self-service and digital improvements programme. The Recruitment Assistant (deployment) will work with the Recruitment team to develop e-content for managers to support the implementation of recruitment self-service across the council. You will run training sessions for managers on the council’s recruitment system, using manager feedback to further enhance e-content to make it more accessible, supportive and user friendly. You will promote the day-to-day self-service delivery of online recruitment providing advice and support to hiring managers on recruitment system processes. You will champion the use of modern digital approaches to recruitment supporting the implementation of system improvements where required.

If you have experience of advising on recruitment processes and systems, then this could be the next challenge for you and we would welcome your application.
