Whether you are from the borough, live in a neighbouring area or are from miles away, we want you to know a bit about the council and the borough it serves.
Firstly Dudley Council is one of the top performing local authorities in the country according to the Audit Commission.
The top rating status reflects the council’s excellent adult social care and housing service, its good children’s services and the good progress it has made in regeneration, with ambitious plans for millions of pounds worth of investment across the borough.
The council has also been praised for its work with diverse communities to strengthen community cohesion and significantly it was noted that Dudley Council has good capacity, with its partners, to make future improvements.
Working with partner agencies is very important to Dudley. If you join our 15,000 plus workforce you’ll find an ethos of partnership working with the common goal of making the borough a good, healthy and safe place to live, work and visit.

Each has a wealth of heritage, from Stourbridge’s Glass Quarter to Dudley’s 12th century castle, from Halesowen’s historic Leasowes Park to Brierley Hill’s modern retail delights. The towns contribute their own different qualities to the borough making it a special and fascinating place.

“The Council continues to commit as much resources as it can to aid staff training. Our current training plan with its evolving offer of courses and services demonstrates just how much we are doing to influence the culture of this Council and turn us into the high-achieving and exciting organisation we want to be.”
Our training programme is influenced by the ever changing needs of the council. The next twelve months is likely to be no exception to previous years with a wide number of changes taking place that will affect the organisational structure and the people who work within it.
During times of change, it is particularly important to maintain a strong approach to developing people and teams, in order to offer them the maximum opportunities for growth and development. This will enable them to maintain their enthusiasm, develop new and wider skill bases and channel their commitment to improving the organisation.
Extensive research has shown that investment in appropriate learning and development enhances individual performance and, in turn, the performance of the organisation.
