Reasons to work for us

Benefits of working for the Council

As well as good pay and a final salary pension scheme, there are many other reasons to take a job at the Council.

Training and development

We have many training courses and learning opportunities to help you develop your career.

Fairness and respect

We treat all our employees with fairness and respect.  We want people from all walks of life to work with us.  Our equality and rights page tells you more about this.

Work life balance

Flexi time, part time working, job sharing, annualised hours or home working may be possible depending on the role.  You can read about some of our other benefits on the myjobscotland website, or contact us for more details.

Moving house

If you have to move house to work with us, we may be able to help you with some of the expenses.  You can ask about this at your interview or contact us at any time for more information.

Travel to and at work

If you have to travel to get to work, you can apply for a loan for a public transport season ticket or join our bike to work scheme. If you need to travel as part of your job, we will give you public transport tickets.  You can also claim back the cost if you use your bike or your car for this. 

Staff discounts

We have a scheme that gives you discounts at restaurants, shops, leisure facilities and other places in Edinburgh. See our online benefits magazine for more details.
