Working in Inverclyde
A team that pulls together
Our 4,000 strong team is our biggest and best asset. After all, without the input of our people we can't achieve our goals. That's why we aim to be the best employer we can be and why our vision of excellent employee practice is at the heart of everything we do.
We know that work is only a small part of your life. That's why on top of a generous salary package we offer a range of employee benefits designed to help you get the work/ life balance right. Benefits like maternity, paternity and adoption leave. The option of flexible, family friendly hours for those with children under 16 or who care for a dependant. Not to mention life assurance, discount schemes and – where applicable – relocation assistance.
This is a challenging and exciting time for us and in order to help us achieve our goals, not only do we want to attract the best people possible to join us, but also to help those already on our team realise their true potential. That's why we're committed to helping our people develop their skills and build on their experience. We want our people to progress and we provide the opportunities and support they need to do just that.
Inverclyde Council welcomes applications from former armed forces personnel / reservists. Many of the skills picked up during your military career could be transferred directly into a role with local government – please view our current vacancies and apply.
We're a team and everyone in that team counts.
Job Start Payment is a one-off payment of £250, or £400 if the young person has responsibility for any children. It is there to support young people with costs associated with starting a new job. It is available to people aged 16 to 24, or 25 if they are a care leaver. Find out more about jobs and careers with us.
