People are our most valuable asset.  We know that through great teamwork our staff ensure excellent services are delivered to our community. For this reason, we are committed to recruiting the best and continuing to invest in learning and development. We are proud to have been awarded Investors in People which recognises this commitment.

As a people organisation, we recognise the needs of individuals and create opportunities for part time working, job sharing and flexible working.  We also operate a flexi-time scheme for most posts.

Our values underpin everything we do and staff at all levels are encouraged to actively take part in shaping our services for the future to ensure that we deliver the best possible customer service.

Our values:

  • listening
  • open
  • caring
  • accountable
  • looking forward
  • brave and bold

Our ambition is to keep East Devon an outstanding place.

Our priorities that will help us to do this are:

  • encouraging communities to be outstanding
  • developing an outstanding local economy
  • delivering and promoting our outstanding environment
  • continuously improving to be an outstanding council
