Islington is a vibrant, thriving area with a diverse community and is a great place to live and work.

At Islington Council, we strive to be an organisation where employees feel valued, inspired and empowered to help us provide the best possible services for our residents.

If you come and work with us, we’ll ask that you commit to our vision of working towards a fairer Islington for all our residents and that you work diligently and efficiently to help us achieve it.

In return, we’ll offer fair pay, good working conditions, development opportunities and some great employee benefits.

We were among the first employers to be awarded the Mayor of London’s Good Work Standard – a new benchmark for high employment standards. We are also an accredited London Living Wage employer.

There are a range of benefits available to staff including: 

  • Up to 30 days leave per year

  • A range of flexible working arrangements

  • Excellent pension scheme

  • Competitive pay – and a commitment to paying all staff and apprentices the London Living Wage

  • Learning and development opportunities to maximise your potential

  • Annual season ticket loan

  • Cycle to Work Scheme and discounted gym memberships

  • Payroll giving

  • Personal Computer Incentive Scheme

  • Local discounts from restaurants, shops, health and beauty therapists, and more! 

Staff support networks


Islington Council has an ongoing commitment to make Islington a fairer place to work and live. Staff forums exist to promote this and encourage networking between staff to ensure their voices are heard.

There are five forums: 

  • BME Staff Forum

  • Carers Staff Forum

  • Disabled Staff Forum

  • LGBT Staff Forum 

  • Women’s Staff Forum 

Employees can also join a recognised trade union


Listening to our staff 


As a council, we want to make sure that we communicate and engage with staff effectively. We carry out regular anonymous surveys and hold staff panels to find out how we're doing, and highlight where we can make improvements.
