Working for us

Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council is an excellent council to work for.

The last time we took part in 'Best companies to work for' we came fourth out of all councils and we have also been rated excellent by the Audit Commission in the past.

We recognise the importance of fair treatment and equal access to council services and employment.

We are committed to flexible and modern ways of working that support our staff in balancing their work and home lives while enabling the delivery of excellent services to the community.

Employee benefits


The salary of a post is determined through our job evaluation process.

Upon appointment to a post you will usually commence at the bottom of the pay scale unless qualifications and experience justify otherwise.

Pay scales

Your salary will increase by one increment on the 1 April each year up to the top of the grade.

If you commence employment between 1 October and 31 March your first increment will be paid six months after commencing employment.

Additionally, your salary will normally increase in line with an annual cost of living award which is negotiated nationally. This is usually awarded in April of each year.
