The Local Government Pension Scheme provides a flexible and portable plan that will help you put money aside to provide you with an income when you reach retirement.

Interest-free season ticket loan

To help you get to and from work we can lend you the cost of a season ticket – interest free – and deduct it from your salary over the next 12 months.

We also offer:

  • Generous annual holiday, starting at 26 days a year
  • Interest-free computer loans
  • Discounts through our partners for redecorating your home
  • Discounts at local shops and cafes
  • Social events and activities throughout the year

Beyond the day job

We host a range of events throughout the year, such as our summer staff BBQ, winter Staff Awards ceremony, International Women’s Day, LGBT and Black History Month celebrations, and MacMillan Coffee Mornings.

There are also plenty of opportunities to socialise with your colleagues outside of work time, from on-site yoga, to dance classes, pilates, book club and netball!
