Investors in People has recently been delighted to award Trowbridge Town Council its highest accolade in the form of its Gold Accreditation. This means that the organisation has been found to have a number of correct and appropriate policies in place, meaning that everyone at the Town Council – from the Chief Executive to apprentice –  takes ownership in the process. Only 16% of organisations accredited by IiP achieve this status.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said “We’d like to congratulate Trowbridge Town Council’s Gold accreditation on We invest in people is a fantastic effort for any organisation, and places Trowbridge Town Council in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”

“This is a good place to work. It’s an involving, empowering and listening organisation”

“Relationships are really strong, and everyone is very trusting and respectful of each other”

“I get brilliant support from my manager. They’re amazing, and always involving and encouraging”

“There is a lot of freedom, autonomy and trust for you to pursue ideas and projects, that will benefit the service and people of Trowbridge”

“The Council is really committed to providing training to help you develop. I cannot fault what’s been available”

“I love this job; the role is made for me. It helped me to move from having a job to having a career”
