Flexible Working Arrangements
The Council operates a flexitime scheme which applies in most departments.  However, a small number of posts have fixed working hours due to the nature of the service provided.  The standard working week for full-time employees is 37.
Most full-time posts are open to job-sharing.  This is where two people share the hours and duties of a post and also the pay and conditions.  Staff can apply for job sharing on their own and we make every effort to find to find a job-sharing partner. 
Employee Development and Training
Employees are encouraged to develop skills and knowledge related to their work and career development.  The Council runs a programme of in-house training and development courses for all staff.  The Council will consider supporting any employee to attend training and/or further education courses relevant to their current post.
Sick Pay
Employees under the NJC bargaining group are entitled to receive sick pay for the following periods:
· During first year of service:
1 months full pay and (after 4 months pay) 2 months half pay.
· During second year of service:
2 months full pay and 2 months half pay.
· During third year of service:
4 months full pay and 4 months half pay.
· During fourth and fifth years service:
5 months full pay and 5 months half pay.
· After five years service:
6 months full pay and 6 months half pay.
Annual Leave
Full-time employees have a minimum of 24 days' holiday, rising to 29 days after 5 or more years' local government service.
This may differ slightly for different groups (i.e. Teachers, Soulbury)
There are normally eight public holidays per annum.
Employees should choose one of the following three means of providing themselves with a pension to supplement their basic state retirement pension:
1) The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)
2) A personal pension through an authorised pension provider
3) The State Earnings Related Pension Scheme (SERPS)
