Before a final decision is made on an appointment, it is important that the successful applicant feels 'right' about joining the Council. The employment process is a two way thing – the Council has to be confident you are the best person for the position and, equally, you have to be sure the Council is 'right' for you. To this end you may be asked to talk with other staff who you might work with to get a 'feel' for the culture of the Council. This will be done before you are asked to make a decision on our employment offer.
The employment offer will generally be made verbally over the phone and supported by written confirmation.
The relevant salary range for the position is included in the job description. The commencing salary will be subject to negotiation at the time of appointment but will be within the stated range.
