Life and work

We're transforming our everyday practice to support you at work - but we help you keep a good work/life balance in other ways too.

Flexible working

We offer flexible working arrangements to create your best work/life balance including condensed four-day week working, nine-day fortnights and other options.

Leave and support

We offer a generous annual leave entitlement - plus the opportunity to purchase up to two weeks of additional annual leave through our salary sacrifice scheme.

We also offer maternity, paternity and adoption pay and time off to support you as your family grows and support if you care for relatives or friends who are older, disabled or seriously ill.

There is an independently-run nursery within the grounds of Norfolk County Hall which offers priority spaces to our employees.

We are committed to promoting the health, safety and wellbeing of our social workers. We provide access to services that support your health and wellbeing, such as confidential counselling and advice, fast-track physiotherapy and NHS Health Checks for employees over 40.
