Other benefits of working at the council

Here are just some of the other benefits of working at the council in addition to all the offers available on the mylifestyle hub.

Annual leave

Annual leave varies for office staff, craft workers, and teachers, so check your individual contract or speak to your line manager to confirm your specific allocation. You can also check the council's public holiday calendar to see dates when many services will be closed.

Flexible working

A good work-life balance benefits everyone. Talk to your line manager about voluntary reduced hours, term-time hours, compressed hours, home working, and more.

Flexi time

If you're eligible, you can accrue flexi time by working beyond your contractual hours to finish a task or project (with prior agreement from your line manager). This is helpful if you have a dentist appointment during working hours, for example.


If you have a contract of three months or more, you'll be automatically enrolled in the Strathclyde Pension Fund. Even if your contract is for fewer than three months, you can still choose to join the scheme.

Other benefits

There are lots of other benefits of working at the council, including support for working carers, counselling, special leave, and more. Talk to your line manager to learn more about the full range of staff benefits, or check your contract to learn about any individual terms of employment.
