Investing in you

We ensure that you have every opportunity to achieve your potential


Opportunities to grow and develop don't just come along at the beginning – they're a feature of your entire career with us. From the word go, you'll have your own development plan especially tailored to help you succeed in your job and progress in your career.

To keep everyone performing at their peak, we create a development plan that will help you reach your potential regardless of your job or level or responsibility. It's designed to support you and will help you establish where your strengths are and what you need to work on to achieve your goals.

The service centre aims to create an environment where people can flourish and learn together and make it easy for us all to join in and build our expertise, so we can be successful now and in the future. It gives us a place to share knowledge, information and best practice. We will identify specialists in the business who can offer support and coaching on specific subjects.

Further to this, we will provide opportunities that will stretch you personally and professionally, and prepare you for more responsibility.

In an organisation as big and complex as ours, there's a host of different opportunities on offer. Of course, it's up to you to make the most of them. But once you set your direction, we'll give you all the internal coaching, external training and practical support we can.

On joining, you'll find out what training opportunities are available for the first three months. After that, you'll get out of our training package what you put in. It's your career and it's up to you how far you'll go. What you can be sure of is that we'll support you every step of the way.

Valuing Performance

Hampshire County Council is changing. We recognise that we need to radically change the way we work, so we can continue to deliver high quality services with less funding. Valuing Performance ensures clear expectations about what needs to be achieved and how. It will enable us to continually develop and improve our performance to meet the ever changing needs of Hampshire residents.
