Fenland District Council is set in the heart of beautiful rural countryside.
We are an ambitious and forward thinking local authority. Our strong 'One Team' ethos and positive 'can do' culture enables us to continually deliver great outcomes for our residents. We live and operate by our values, which are:
- Value, respect and dignity for all
- Adopt a positive one team approach
- Listen, talk and take action
- Understand, learn and improve
- Encourage, enable and support
- Service excellence
It is very important for us to attract and retain staff with the right skills and values. We empower our workforce to go that extra mile in delivering important services for local people.
Our main offices are based in Fenland Hall, March, which is a 5 minute walk from March train station. This also offers good links to Peterborough, Cambridge and London.
We embrace flexible working and in many roles it is possible to enjoy hybrid working.
Fenland District Council has a unique and distinctive culture that has been embedded throughout the organisation by the senior management team.
Our organisational culture promotes flexibility, mutual support, high performance and staff reward and recognition.
This translates as the whole of the organisation seeing themselves as working for the community, rather than for a 'department'.
This culture means we are driven by the needs of our communities and operate on the basis of the priorities that our residents set down for us to achieve.
We are a great organisation to work for. Benefits include:
- Flexible working
- Government contributory Pension Scheme
- 21+ days holiday per annum (increases with government continuous service)
- Comprehensive Employee Benefits Scheme (including an Employee Assistance Programme and retail discount schemes)
- Subsidised membership to local leisure centres
- Free car parking
- Eyesight tests
- Access to an occupational health programme
- Focus on employee well-being and family friendly policies
- Relocation (where applicable)
We are strongly committed to individual training and ongoing professional development. We are focused on enabling our employees to develop their skills, knowledge and competencies - not just to deliver their current role, but to develop their potential.
We are also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment.
As part of our ongoing commitment to staff wellbeing, we have about 40 trained mental health first aiders. Their purpose is to provide confidential support to colleagues relating to mental health issues.
Our mental health first aiders cover all of our sites. As well as providing continued support, they deliver campaigns and fundraising activities to embed mental health awareness across the Council.
We are a Disability Confident employer. The scheme demonstrates our commitment to positive action to ensure disabled people are treated fairly and have access to the same opportunities as non-disabled people. We wish to make it clear that we welcome applications from disabled people and that we are positive about their abilities. The scheme also shows existing employees that we value their contribution and will treat them fairly if they become disabled. Read more about our equal opportunities at Fenland District Council.
