Working here

As an organisation that values and nurtures talent, we're committed to helping you fulfil your potential and will offer you a supportive, friendly and collaborative environment to grow and develop your career and skills. We're constantly striving to improve our ways of working so putting your ideas across, however big or small, will be fully encouraged and supported by your colleagues and management team.

In addition we offer a modern and flexible working environment for our staff allowing you to work flexibly from multiple locations, whilst on the move from your mobile or tablet and where appropriate at home following the introduction of Google Mail and Apps which have acted as a key enabler for collaborative and streamlined working. Our staff also use a virtual desktop which you'll be able to access from anywhere.

We also offer a variety of staff benefits including:

  • 23 / 26 / 29 days annual leave plus bank holidays - dependent on grade

  • Flexible working arrangements

  • Local discounts for shopping, eating out and leisure activities

  • Interest free season ticket loans

  • Local Government Pension Scheme

  • Cyclescheme - enabling you to get a brand new bike and safety equipment for your commute / access to our Pool Bikes Scheme

  • Childcare vouchers       

  • Access to our Zipcar scheme for work use and discounted rates for personal use

  • Volunteer days

We're also making big changes in Kingston and Sutton at the moment, with all staff having recently received a new Google Chrome device, and the recent refurbishment of some of our buildings.

Our office environments in Guildhall 2 in Kingston and the Civic Centre in Sutton are modern and dynamic, reflecting the ambitions to become networked, collaborative and agile organisations, and include features such as open meeting spaces, group meeting pods, video conferencing, new desks, project tables, height adjustable desks, personal lockers, team storage, quiet working cubicles, touchdown benches, one-to-one meeting pods, and rest and eating spaces.
