Core values and behaviours framework


The Core Values and Behaviours have been developed to enable great performance.  This document sets a standard of behaviours by describing positive and negative examples.  The context and work carried out by each service area should also be taken into account to bring this to life for employees. 

In some roles, for example, there will be a light touch when it comes to ‘Political and Commercial Focus’.  We all need to understand the environment we work in but do not all need to work with members.  Use your judgement accordingly to bring the behaviours and expectations to life.

‘What’ we do (the delivery of our work) and ‘how’ we do it (the behaviours and values we demonstrate) are equally important, especially as we are a public body and open to scrutiny.

Behaviours can be used as part of:

  • recruitment selection activity
  • performance and development objectives

The behaviour descriptions in this framework help to outline what is expected.
