Working for the Council

Employee Benefits for Contracted staff

Flexible Working
The Council operates a flexible working hours system, which provides flexibility in your hours of work within the constraints of the duties of the post. In principle, all employees (except Directors and Heads of Service) are included in the scheme.  However the duties of certain posts may prevent some employees from participating to the same degree as others, for example where fixed shifts or working hours are in operation.  In some areas or offices a 'rota system' may need to be introduced so that there is always a sufficient number of employees on hand to assist the public during the normal office/operating hours.  

Corporate Leisure Membership
The Council offers corporate membership of its Leisure facilities at a reduced rate for employees.

Membership of a Trade Union
You have the right to join a trade union and to take part in its activities.  However, you also have the right not to join a trade union.  Details of the specified trade unions on the appropriate negotiating body are available for you to refer to at HR Services, Civic Centre, Beecroft Road, Cannock, WS11 1BG.

Pension Scheme
The Council operates a contributory pension scheme open to all employees.  Employee contributions are linked to pensionable pay..

Personal Development and Post Entry Training Scheme 
The Council is committed to supporting the Personal Development of all its employees, and as such undertakes regular one-to-one reviews with employees in order to discuss performance and potential for development.  Where the undertaking of formal qualifications is identified as an essential requirement of the role, the authority will offer financial and other support in accordance with its Post Entry Training Scheme
