The focus is on you.

We offer competitive pay and reward the hard work of our staff.  For qualified social worker posts, market supplement payments are made in addition to your salary (subject to eligibility).

You will have generous annual leave beyond the statutory minimum. Our leave entitlements start at 24 days in addition to bank holidays. And you can expect a further five days once you have completed five years’ service.

We are committed to ensuring that our staff hold a manageable caseload.  We also understand that not everyone can work 8.30am to 5.00pm - that's why we are committed to helping our employees achieve the perfect balance.

  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Working from home
  • Flexi time and TOIL

Essentially, we try to ensure your responsibilities, commitments and dreams outside of work are supported. We even offer pool cars when you need to travel for council business.

We have access to an occupational health service and employee counselling service offering professional support and guidance.

We invest in our employees to make sure you have the right skills and experience to provide a first class service to the people of Rutland.  The training we offer includes professional and personal development - a real opportunity to grow your career.  

It’s also reassuring to know that you will be entitled to join the Local Government Pension scheme - a secure scheme with an excellent range of benefits.
