Diversity

Valuing Bristol’s Diversity

Bristol has long been a diverse city and is becoming ever more diverse. This is one of its great strengths. Securing the benefits of Bristol’s diversity by being a more inclusive organisation will help the Council to: be more creative, make decisions that are informed by different points of view, know our communities well and listen to them more closely, design, commission and deliver the most effective possible services, make the best use of our resources.

For this and all of our recruitment we want to attract innovative and talented individuals who can help us achieve this vision. We want people who share our values and commitment to serve the city, its communities and citizens. 

We pride ourselves on growing a workforce that is talented, diverse and motivated and represents the community it serves.

It’s a great time to join us. We became the first major city to publish reports on ethnicity and disabled employees pay gaps, as well as the required gender pay gap report. We're now changing and improving our equality, diversity and inclusion performance and embedding positive practices into everything we do.

We are values led organisation. We’re investing in changes and improvements to recruitment, strategies and leadership that lead to increased diversity and inclusion in the council’s workforce.
