Rewards and benefits

We’ve said it before and we’ll happily say it again: Our people help make Warrington work... Precisely because our people do such a great job, we’ve put together an attractive and competitive benefits package including...

Flexible working 

The council offers a number of flexible working arrangements which mean (subject to service delivery) you may have the opportunity to job share, work from home, access to a flexitime time scheme, reduction in hours for care commitments, career breaks and generous maternity, paternity and adoption schemes. 

Holiday allowance

We have a generous holiday allowance from 25 to 30 days, depending on how long you have worked for us. 

Childcare vouchers 

Employees can make significant savings on existing childcare costs with childcare vouchers. Childcare vouchers are available to all staff with children between 0-15 years old to pay for approved / registered childcare. 

Pension scheme  

All employees are automatically entered into the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). The scheme is currently a final salary pension scheme and contributions are deducted directly from your salary and a significant contribution is also made by the council too. 

Car leasing scheme

Warrington’s car lease scheme gives our employees the opportunity to access a low emission car at a very competitive price. Employees can choose from a wide range of cars and make savings through a salary sacrifice arrangement. 

Concessionary bus passes 

All employees can access a 25% discount on all weekly, monthly and annual bus passes purchased for use on Warrington Borough Transport services. 

Local discounts 

We have negotiated lots of discounts and exclusive staff offers with local businesses in Warrington, from restaurants and bars to gyms and shops.
