General Conditions

A brief statement of terms and conditions of employment is available for all our vacancies. The following points may be helpful to applicants:

Employer Status

The Peak District National Park Authority is a local authority for the purposes of the Redundancy Payments (Continuity of Employment in Local Government, etc.) (Modification) Order 1999.

Salary Scales

We undertake job evaluation within the Local Government job evaluation scheme. Except where varied and supplemented by local agreements and arrangements, the terms and conditions of employment within the Authority are in accordance with the provisions of the national agreement of the National Joint Council for Local Government Services or the Joint Negotiating Committees for Chief Officers and Chief Executives.


Annual leave entitlement is 25 days plus statutory holidays per year (pro rata for part-time employees) rising to 30 days per year following the completion of 5 years continuous local government service.

Casual employees receive a holiday pay supplement on top of their basic rate of pay for holiday rather than accruing and taking annual leave.


All Authority employees aged under 75 who have specified contractual hours for more than three months are eligible to join the Local Government Pension Scheme. This is a contributory, final salary scheme with details on appointment. Casual employees are not eligible to join.

Flexible Working

The Authority aims to help staff achieve a better balance between work and the rest of their lives and recognises that by so doing, high levels of employee satisfaction and performance will be achieved and as a result services will be improved.

Examples of our flexible working arrangements include:

  • Flexible working and extended flexible working
  • Homeworking
  • Annualised hours
  • Reduced hours
  • Aggregated leave
  • Unpaid leave

Childcare vouchers

The Authority operates a salary-sacrifice childcare voucher scheme. This is a tax-efficient way for parents to pay for childcare with a registered provider.

As their earnings are not guaranteed, casual employees are not eligible to join this scheme.
