Staff

The council employs around 140 staff.  This is a very low number for a district council, particularly taking into account the size and population of the district.  T

Turnover amongst staff is low at a little above 10 per cent per annum.  Absence levels are very low.  Salary levels are competitive and the council is not suffering any widespread difficulty in recruiting new staff.  Problems tend to arise in particular professional disciplines and are common throughout the local area.

The council has had Investors in People Status and we take seriously our responsibility to equip staff with the skills needed to do their role. We are committed to ensuring that all employees and prospective employees are treated equally, fairly and with dignity and respect.
