If you’re ambitious and forward-thinking, then Wrexham Council could be the perfect place for you. As a high-performing council, and one of the largest employers in the area, we aim for innovation and excellence in everything we do.
We have a workforce of around 5,500 in a wide range of roles. We rely on our employees to deliver high quality services and in return we offer rewarding career opportunities.
These are some of the benefits of being a council employee…
Local Government Pension Scheme
The Local Government Pension Scheme is a valuable part of the pay and reward package for our employees.
If you’re employed for three months or more, you’ll automatically join the Local Government Pension Scheme. You could also increase your retirement benefits by paying additional voluntary contributions.
We understand that balancing work and home commitments can be difficult, and people prefer to work different hours and patterns.
We aim to offer flexible hours, with the possibility of arranging job-sharing, term-time working or compressed working hours and some roles have agile working arrangements.
Family friendly policies
We can help employees with caring and family commitments by providing dependent care leave and compassionate leave.
A minimum of 23 days annual leave are given, increasing with your length of service to a maximum of 31 days. You could also gain ‘flexi-days’, building up time to take off by working extra hours.
We also provide enhanced maternity, adoption and paternity leave, and benefits.
Trade union membership
We have agreements with nationally recognised trade unions who represent their members.
Health and well-being
You will have access to a flexible range of benefits that support your health and well-being. These include support from an Occupational Health service; ‘Care First’ our employee assistance programme and, dependent on length of service, sick pay.
Also available to you are retail and leisure discounts, tools to support financial health and a cycle to work scheme through our Wrexham Council Rewards offer.
You could get a reduced rate membership at some of our local gyms and leisure centres.
Learning, training and development
We offer a wide variety of opportunities to learn, train and develop so that you’ll have the confidence, skills and knowledge to work effectively and reach your full potential.
Our philosophy is to support Wrexham and enable everyone to fulfil their potential, prosper and achieve a high standard of well-being. That goes for our workforce too.
