Chief Executive Welcome

Welcome to the Council

I am really pleased and excited to welcome you to Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council. I am sure you will have an enjoyable time delivering services for the borough's residents, communities and businesses, and hope that you go on to have a fulfilling and successful career here.

We pride ourselves on valuing everybody's contributions within the organisation, with a fantastic culture based on working as 'one team'.  I am certain you will settle in very soon and I look forward to getting a chance to meet you personally and welcome you as a member of that team.

This online induction process will enable you to understand the council, how we work and our priorities, as well as where to access all of the really helpful and supportive HR policies. 

We understand the importance of developing a quality workforce, and are committed to your learning and development, enabling you to release your potential and help to deliver our corporate priorities - you can find out more about these in our Business Plan.

Our values are integrity, fairness, transparency and respect.  These are important from both an internal and external perspective, and we aim to be a dynamic, high performing, customer focused council, delivering excellent services for residents and businesses.

I am really pleased you have decided to be a part of that, and I wish you every success in your career at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council.
