Following the recruitment process any appointment would be subject to conditions of employment which are nationally and locally negotiated between the Employer's Representatives and the appropriate Trade Unions.
A generous annual leave scheme is offered with entitlement depending upon grade and length of service in local government.
Flexible Working Hours Scheme
The Council operates a Flexible Hours Working Scheme for many employees, which means that employees can vary their working hours between 6.00 am and 8.00 pm.
Successful applicants will be required to complete a medical questionnaire and, where necessary, attend a medical examination in order to determine their ability to carry out the duties of the post in question or to determine any reasonable adjustments.

Except where a person has worked for another Local Authority immediately prior to their appointment with this Council, their employment will be subject to the satisfactory completion of 26 weeks probationary service.

If the post for which you are applying states in the Personnel Specification that a Disclosure and Barring check is required, then the post is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) Order 1975.
