We provide a range of benefits to support you in both your work and personal lives.
We provide most of the benefits when you start with the us.
You can access our healthcare cash plan scheme after you complete your probationary period.
Full-time employees receive a minimum of 236.8 hours (32 days) holiday, including bank holidays. We offer an extra week after five years of continual service (pro rata'd for part time staff). There is also the option to purchase additional annual leave.
The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for employees working in local government. It is one of the largest pension schemes in the UK with over five million scheme members.
Where this suits the needs of the organisation and where practical, we will support employees working from home for part of their working week. We also support flexibility in how you work your contractual hours over the course of the week.
We pay for a healthcare cash plan for all permanent employees who have passed their probationary period.
This is a free confidential service we provide to all employees. They offer expert advice, invaluable information, specialist counselling and support.
Subject to availability, employees will be able to save each month direct from net pay and have access to an instant loan of up to £3,000. Personal loans of up to £20,000 are also available once you have been saving regularly.
Our staff travel plan contains a package of measures to reduce the use of private cars. It aims to promote walking, cycling, using public transport and car sharing. The staff travel plan includes discounts, such as 20% off season tickets.
Employees can apply for a loan to purchase a bike or cycling equipment for travelling to work, which can save up to 42%. Some restrictions apply.
Members of the Local Government Pension Scheme are able to make additional pension contributions through a salary sacrifice SCAVC provided by AVC Wise, to build up an additional retirement fund.
Our employees benefit from various discounts for many businesses in Chelmsford.
We will pay the annual subscription to one professional body if this is a requirement of the post.
Available for all employees, parking is currently offered at Meadows Retail Multi-Storey.
