  • Agile Working Policy – many colleagues where roles permit, split their time between working from home and the office.
  • Personal development – We actively encourage development and support colleagues with training opportunities including apprenticeships which can now include degrees and Masters.
  • Discounts at the Council’s leisure centres in Loughborough, Syston and Mountsorrel
  • Staff discounts and benefits scheme - saving colleagues money on shopping, travel and more across hundreds of stores
  • Cycle to work scheme - staff can save money on a bike and cycling accessories by making monthly payments from your salary before you’re taxed.
