Our values and behaviours

All of our staff are expected to live by our core values - the Kent Values. These values affect everything we do with customers, partners and each other.

Open

Acting with integrity, honesty and transparency; healthy attitude to risk; welcoming and expecting change and evolving technology; working in new ways; willing to learn; working as a whole-council and treating people fairly and with respect.

Invite contribution and challenge

Working collaboratively and innovatively to find new solutions that put the interests and wellbeing of customers first; open to challenge and actively encouraging and expecting contribution.

Accountable

Self-sufficient, taking personal and professional responsibility for our actions, the pace at which we work; performance and the council's money.
