Chelmsford City Council

We are part of the Essex Community Shield, which brings volunteers together with the people most in need of help due to coronavirus. You can find out how to get help, or how to volunteer. You can also view our latest coronavirus updates.


Probationary period

Your probationary period will last for six months from the day you start with us.

You will have a review with your manager at three months, then another review at five months.

Your manager will discuss your objectives with you, and make sure you are comfortable in your role. They will also consider your strengths, and any areas for improvement, against the Chelmsford Behaviours.


Chelmsford Behaviours

We expect all of our employees to meet the Chelmsford Behaviours in their conduct and in how they deliver services.

The Chelmsford Behaviours are based on:

  • communication
  • performance
  • attitude
  • adaptability
  • fairness


Personal Performance Appraisals (PPAs)

After your probationary period, your manager will continue to review your performance, behaviours and career development in annual appraisals.
