Your work / life balance
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected how we work. At GCC we have adapted to become more agile in our working, meaning that there is flexibility in how, where and when you work. This means that we can work effectively while out in the community and make the best use of available resources.
Many employees at Gloucestershire County Council have the benefit of flexible working patterns including flexi-time (TOIL scheme), job share, part-time or compressed hours (where organisational requirements allow).
We are currently exploring our hybrid working arrangements which will allow for greater flexible working. The aim is to give you the option to work from home, in the office or other locality offices in a way which works well for both you and the service.
Time off work
At GCC we are working hard to ensure our employees aren’t “All work, no play”. We offer an initial holiday allowance of 24.5 days (plus the 8 Bank Holidays), which will rise to 29.5 days after five years’ continuous service with us. You also have the opportunity to request to buy up to 10 additional days off through our Purchase of Additional Leave Scheme.
