Why Work for the Council?

When considering the type of employment that will best suit your personal, financial and career objectives, it is important to know the differences in employment between governmental and nongovernmental work. For many, working for the government is an ideal choice as there is a heightened level of job security, compared to working for private companies, which are exposed to economic recessions and market fluctuations.

Working for the Councils in your local area can be one of the most advantageous types of employment you can gain. Most Councils offer excellent working conditions, competitive rates of pay, pleasant workplace environment, and job satisfaction to their employees, and as such, are one of the most sought after employers in the marketplace.

The primary benefits of becoming a council worker include:

Financial rewards 

expect a competitive salary package and employee benefits such as salary pension scheme, paid expenses and financial support with childcare.

Work/life balance 

working for the Council can provide an excellent work/life balance for employees with a family. Considerations are often made for employees with childcare arrangements and flexi time or job sharing are common.

Discounts and benefits 

Councils often adopt a staff benefits scheme which normally include discounts for a variety of businesses. Some benefits include discounts at specific restaurants.

Job satisfaction 

employees seeking a career that enables them to help ‘give back’ to their community and help those who are in need, can find such job satisfaction by working for their Council. There are positions available in all areas from charity work and environmental health to housing.

Expenses for travel and relocation 

where your Council job requires you to relocate or travel, it is common that the employer will cover your expenses. Usually public transport service tickets will be provided to employees or reimbursements will be given where employees use their own car/bike.

Overall, a career with your local Council provides excellent career development prospects.
