Employer Supported Volunteering Scheme

Employee volunteering can bring a wealth of benefits to the Council and is a traditional way to support the development of key skills such as communication, team working, project management, etc. and provides an opportunity to give practical and specialised support to community groups. Our scheme can be found here.

The Pool Car Scheme enables employees to use brand new (environmentally friendly) vehicles to drive to meetings, site visits and other work-related travel, allowing you to leave your own car at home and no need to complete mileage forms. Further details on joining the scheme can be found on the staff benefits page on Bexweb.

To help reduce pollution and congestion, the Council has a CarShare scheme dedicated for employees who commute from the same area and wish to car share.
