Your pay and pension
To recognise your contribution to Ashfield District Council we have a range of workplace health and benefits available to all of our employees.
Living Wage employer
We are signed up to being a living wage employer, which means all employees are paid at least the living wage. The living wage figures are announced in November of each year, and implemented in the next tax year.
Visit www.livingwage.org.uk for more information.
Occupational pension scheme
Eligible employees have the option to join the local government pension scheme. Your contribution to the scheme is dependent on your pensionable earnings the higher your earning, the higher your contribution rate.
The scheme is good value for money as the council also makes a contribution. In line with the legislation we are required to automatically enrol all eligible employees within the scheme on appointment but you have the choice to opt out if you wish.
