Employee benefits

Employee Passport to Leisure

The employee Passport to leisure give employees reduced charges and advanced bookings for a whole range of activities at council sport centres.

Work-life balance scheme

Many of our jobs are covered by our work-life balance scheme which allows employees to take additional time off, or work more or fewer hours during a working day. The conditions of our work-life balance scheme are dependent on the job you do.

Childcare Plus

Childcare Vouchers are a government scheme that gives you a much needed cash boost if you pay for registered or approved childcare. The vouchers are not just for babies but for all ages in between including teenagers up to 15 or 16 if they are disabled. Things that count as childcare include Holiday and School Clubs, Nurseries, Nannies or anything else that is registered and regulated by your regional governing body.

We have schemes to cover paternity, maternity, adoption, and parental leave. In addition to this we have policies to cover bereavement and situations where you may need compassionate or urgent leave.
