Benefits of working for the Council

Bolsover District Council offers many benefits to its employees and listed below are a range of these to help you appreciate that the council takes its employees welfare very seriously.

We offer flexible working practices....

The Council operates a range of flexible working practices including job sharing, flexitime, and annualised hours. The Council’s flexitime scheme allows employees to vary their starting and finishing times to suit personal needs, subject to the needs of the Council.

The Council also has an extensive range of working patterns which gives employees even greater flexibility in their working hours, including homeworking and compressed working weeks, provided that the needs of customers and the service are not compromised.

We offer good quality learning and development....

From the moment you join the Council, an induction programme, which is jointly carried out by Human Resources and Department Representatives, is undertaken to ensure you quickly settle into your new post. Part of this process is to look at your initial development needs.

In addition to this, the Council has an Appraisal Scheme, which is undertaken annually with a six month review. As part of this process you will do a training needs analysis with your appraiser and complete an Appraisal and Learning and Development Plan. The Council operates a range of in-house courses, as well as externally delivered events.

Employees also have the opportunity to undertake qualification training based on the requirements of the post.

Leadership/Management competencies have been designed and implemented for Joint Chief Executive Officer, Joint Executive Directors, Joint Assistant Directors, Middle Managers, Junior Managers and Team Leaders through the Appraisal system. There are also competencies for employees included in the appraisal form.

We look after the health and safety of our employees....

The Council takes its duty of care to employees very seriously and has many mechanisms relating to workplace safety issues. In addition, it provides a comprehensive occupational health service with access to an occupational health nurse/doctor, who can advise on medical and welfare problems. This service also provides health promotion programmes on a rolling basis, and referral to the Bolsover Wellness Programme for employees with specific medical problems.

An independent external confidential counselling service is also provided by the Council to assist our employees, together with a physiotherapy service on recommendation from the occupational health provider.

We offer equality for all....

The Council is committed to providing equality of opportunity in all aspects of employment and has an established Equalities Policy, Race Equality Scheme, Gender Equality Scheme and Disability Equality Scheme.
