Ways of working

We all want the Gambling Commission to be a great place to work, a place where we are all:

  • supported and developed to do the best work of our lives
  • contribute ideas for continually strengthening the organisation internally, externally and reputationally
  • take personal responsibility for doing our best to reach our potential.

We all need to play our part if the Commission is going to achieve the ambitions we set ourselves in the strategy. The ways of working are designed to explain how we will go about our work, rather than the tasks we will carryout to achieve those ambitions.

They describe ‘the way we will do things around here’ and are intended to allow us all to ask ourselves: did I act in that way today (or this week or month)?

They will also be a key part of feedback about our individual and collective performance in the future.

Success is built on openness, accountability and collaboration. If we all work in a way that is consistent with our ways of working, success is inevitable.
