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.

We have an exciting 1 year fixed term contract opportunity for a Digital Learning & Design Lead. You will work with HR colleagues to support the implementation of the council’s digital learning strategy and to develop learning pathways for user groups. You will provide expert guidance, advice, and support to colleagues on the design, development and implementation of online materials and resources, helping colleagues implement a range of new technologies to enhance the learning experience.

You will develop internal digital learning capability through events, advice, tools and resources engaging with employee representative groups. You will be an advocate for the user experience when developing digital learning solutions and provide high-level advice and guidance in the effective use and implementation of blended learning and other technologies.

If you think you have the skills and experience and have what it takes to take forward our vision then we look forward to receiving your application.
