Hiring the talent we need to realise our ambitions.
In Kensington and Chelsea, we have an ambitious Council Plan which sets out our priorities for the future.

Embedding lessons from the Grenfell tragedy and recovering from the pandemic will be top priorities, and we need many more talented people to help us succeed. Our Human Resources team works hard to ensure we’re a great place to work – and that the market is aware of the scope and opportunities we offer.
