Portsmouth City Council wants to bring out the best in people – and bring in the best people to work for us. That’s why we offer great benefits to our staff.

Flexible working

It’s important to make sure our staff find a balance between work and home. That’s why we offer flexible working arrangements like flextime, part-time working, job sharing, term-time contracts and home working in many roles.


As well as generous annual leave and flexible working arrangements, we also offer enhanced parental leave and adoption support leave and special leave for emergencies and bereavement.

Plan for your future

All employees are eligible to join the Local Government Pension Scheme, considered one of the best available.

Great discounts

We help reward our staff with staff discounts in local and national retailers, as well as a cycle to work scheme and season ticket loans for bus, ferry or train.

Opportunities for development

We’re dedicated to nurturing talent in our organisation. Secondment and apprenticeship opportunities are common, giving our employees a chance to challenge themselves and develop new skills.
