For You

Flexible working

Where possible we offer flexible start and finish times, allowing you to manage your working day.

Pension scheme

When you work for us you will be able to join the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) – you can opt out if it’s not for you. The pension scheme will be a valuable part of your pay and reward package.

The LGPS is a secure, flexible and tax efficient way of making sure you have a decent pension to look forward to in retirement.

The scheme provides financial security for you and your dependants by providing a wide range of benefits.
