Employment Package

Salary: £91,196

Location: The Highland Council

Hours: The working hours and arrangements will be those which meet the service needs of the post. The normal working week is 35 hours between Monday and Friday but this is regarded as a minimum expectation for staff at a senior management level in the Council. You may be required to undertake work in evenings and weekends.

Leave: Annual leave entitlement is max 25 days per annum. In addition there is an entitlement to 14 days public holidays, 7 of which are fixed.

Pension:  You will be automatically entered into the Local Government Pension Scheme which is one of the most generous pension schemes in the UK.  The LGPS is a defined benefit scheme which provides a guaranteed, inflation proofed pension based on your pay each year you pay into the scheme, and the option to exchange some of your pension for a tax free lump sum when you retire.  The LGPS also provides valuable life cover and protection for your family.

Relocation: Up to £6,500 may be claimed under the terms of the scheme.

Notice: 3 months

Political Restriction: The post is defined as being politically restricted and will therefore be restricted in terms of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, as amended by the Local Governance (Scotland) Act 2004, and by the Local Government Officers (Political Restrictions) Regulations 1990.
