East Renfrewshire Council is on its way to creating an ambitious Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan in response to the national ambition to reach ‘net-zero’ greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. We are now looking for a key individual who will head up and build our Get to Zero team. Whilst experience of this exciting area is a key criteria, more importantly we want an individual with drive, determination and flexibility to deliver real change in the years ahead. If you are up for the challenge and want to make a difference we want to hear from you.
You will be comfortable and experienced in leading and managing people, supporting senior management and working in partnership with other agencies. You must have a flexible approach to work and able to work under your own guidance, and in collaboration with colleagues as necessary.
Employees with a contract of employment for 3 months or more are automatically included in our Local Government Pension Scheme which is a career average scheme. Pension contribution rates are based on a tiered system determined by your annual full time equivalent pensionable pay. For example for those earning up to and including £21,800 the contribution rate you pay is 5.5% of your salary. The council pays the rest of the cost of providing your benefits. This amount varies but it's always enough to make sure your pension can be paid and will be at least 19.3% of your pay. In addition you get tax relief on your contributions - the tax you pay on your salary is calculated after your pension contributions are deducted.
Other main pension benefits include a pension that increases each year in line with price inflation and the ability to exchange some of your pension to provide a tax free lump sum. Further details can be found in the attached document General Information for Applicants or via the Strathclyde Pension Fund website www.spfo.org.uk.
