Our values

Our plans for Middlesbrough and its people are creative and ambitious, and we all have an important part to play in delivering them.

Our values are a very important part of those plans to create a bright future for Middlesbrough. They are at the heart of everything we do as a council, and guide how we work, behave, and make decisions.

Our five values are: passionate, integrity, creative, collaborative, and focussed.

Passionate

  • We believe in Middlesbrough
  • We are proud to work for the council
  • We have a can-do attitude

Integrity

  • We are open, honest and transparent
  • We communicate well with others
  • We treat others with respect

Creative

  • We always look to improve
  • We find solutions to problems
  • We are positive about change

Collaborative

  • We understand the needs of others
  • We engage and consult with others
  • We seek feedback from others

Focussed

  • We put our customers first
  • We understand the council's and our own priorities
  • We deliver against expectations

All of our staff live our values in everything they do. We're highlighting them in Our Stories section, which will be regularly updated with more videos.
