Redcar & Cleveland Council have an attractive benefits package including:-

- Generous annual leave (minimum 28 days)
- Flexible working hours
- Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme
- Family friendly benefits
- Childcare voucher scheme
- Staff discount scheme
- Discount leisure facilities

In the absence of any exceptional circumstances which render it necessary in the best interests of the Council to do so, the Council will generally not reengage any individual whom has previously been employed by the Council and left that employment with the benefit of a severance, early retirement or redundancy payment under voluntary arrangements. This principle will apply whether such re-engagement is to be under a contract of employment, contract of services or otherwise.
