A Workforce Strategy and Plan for Staffordshire County Council.


“As a council, we are changing. We have big ambitions for Staffordshire and a difficult budget to deliver, so we need to work in new, creative ways to help residents lead happy, healthy and prosperous lives. To do this, we need talented people with the right skills for the future, and leaders who can inspire and motivate their teams.


We want the county council to be a great place to work because a happy, productive workforce will have a positive impact on the lives of the people we serve in Staffordshire.

The same employees and leaders across the county council will now be charged with putting it into practice.”
