About Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council
About Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council
Solihull is regarded as a popular and vibrant place to live in the UK. As one of the most prosperous towns in the Midlands, almost two thirds of our borough is designated as green belt. We have over 1,500 acres of parks across the borough, with 16 Green Flag Awards. Solihull is very well connected, with great transport links such as the M40, M42 and M6 all close by, and an excellent rail network, plus, of course, an international airport. We are home to the award-winning Touchwood Shopping Centre, National Exhibition Centre, Resorts World Birmingham and the Resorts World Arena.
It is an exciting time for Solihull, although we are a relatively small local authority (c. 6000 employees), we still have ambitious plans including the development of UK Central and HS2.
Here at Solihull Council we want to ensure that all our citizens have an equal chance to share in Solihull’s success. We do this by putting our customers at the heart of everything we do.
Smarter Ways of Working and Employee Wellbeing are key Council Priorities.
We recognise that our employees are the key factor in achieving our vision and as such, we are always on the lookout for talented individuals, who want to make a real positive difference to people’s lives and can help us to continue building on our success.
The transition to Smarter Ways of Working has presented us with the opportunity to re-think how and where we work. With the option to access portable technology, dependent upon the requirements of the role, a lot of our people are not bound to a single workplace or traditional ways of working, with many choosing to spend a good proportion of their week working from home.
Our people told us that they value flexibility and that choice enables them to have a better work-life balance, manage family responsibilities, enhance their personal wellbeing and continue to deliver excellent outcomes for the residents of Solihull.
Wellbeing is at the heart of our employee offer and we are a bronze accredited West Midlands Combined Authority Thrive at Work employer. We are very proud that we are the first Local Authority in the West Midlands to achieve this award which recognises our commitment and action in support of employee wellbeing and we are currently working towards Silver accreditation. Our people are our number one asset and our aim is to have a healthy, happy engaged and thriving workforce. We continue to develop our health and wellbeing offer so that it grows alongside our employees.
We will offer you:
- A friendly, supportive and inclusive working environment;
- Competitive salaries including, for those at the top of their scale, the opportunity to receive a non-consolidated lump sum;
- A range of flexible working options;
- Annual leave starting at 24 days and rising to 29 days after 5 years' service in addition to public holidays with an opportunity to purchase up to 10 additional days' holiday per year;
- A generous flexitime scheme (available for most roles);
- Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme;
- A wide range of learning and development opportunities;
- A range of family friendly policies;
- Employee benefits including subsidised travel passes, Cycle 2 Work Scheme, confidential Employee Assistance Programme and staff discount card.
Solihull Council is proud to be an Equal Opportunities Employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit.
As users of the Disability Confident Scheme, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who demonstrate they meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy.
Solihull Council has a responsibility for, and is committed to, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk, and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Please note, where sufficient numbers of applications are received, we reserve the right to close a vacancy before the advertised closing date. We therefore advise that you submit your application as soon as possible.
