About Enfield Council

Who we are

We are the local authority for the London Borough of Enfield.

Enfield Council is engaged on a unique and exciting journey of transformation that makes us one of the most attractive local authorities in the UK to join at this present time.

We’ve got big ambitions to deliver a lifetime of opportunities for everyone in the borough and we have a plan in place that we believe can inspire and challenge our staff and our residents to make it happen.

We provide a range of services to over 300,000 residents, businesses, and visitors, including:

We are a diverse and inclusive organisation, with over 3,000 staff from different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. We value the contributions of our employees and celebrate their achievements. Our commitment is to foster a culture of respect, collaboration, and innovation. We want everyone to thrive and make a difference.

What we do

Our vision is to make Enfield a better place to live, work, and visit. We aim to improve the quality of life for our residents. We will do this by delivering high-quality services, enhancing the environment, and creating opportunities for growth and development.

We work with our partners and communities to address the challenges and opportunities facing our borough, such as:

We are ambitious and forward-thinking, always looking for new ways to improve our services and outcomes. We embrace change and innovation, and we are not afraid to try new things. We are proud of our achievements and the impact we have on our borough and beyond.

Culture and behaviours

We want people who will work collaboratively, flexibly and constructively with residents, colleagues and partners. Our behaviours form part of everything we do, and we demonstrate these through the way we work. It’s not just about what we do, but also how we do it. This is measured through our interactions with our customers, our colleagues, and councillors.

Demonstrating attitudes and approaches which are consistent with our values is key to achieving successful outcomes for us and our customers.

We expect every member of our team to demonstrate our four key behaviours, regardless of who they are and what they do for the council. We lead by example to encourage and inspire each other through these behaviours.

Take responsibility

We‘re willing to make decisions and be accountable for them. Our people have a positive can-do attitude and see problems as challenges to overcome. We accept responsibility for service delivery, are clear about our service offer and deliver what we promise.

Are open, honest and respectful

We’re comfortable and confident with the difficulties and the barriers we face. We’re able to constructively challenge the way things are done where there is evidence that it affects service delivery. Challenges are approached professionally, with the aim of reaching a mutually agreeable resolution.

Listen and learn
