Recruitment information for candidates

Working arrangements

Employees

The Council’s full-time working is 37 hours per week covering 52 weeks per year, with the exact working pattern agreed with your line manager or in accordance with service needs.

Depending on the role you are applying for, you may be required to work flexibly to meet the needs of the service which could include evenings and weekends.

Alternatively, some roles are term-time only, but we also offer part-time and job-share options where possible.

Casual workers

As a Casual Worker you will have no set hours or work pattern; the number of hours and frequency of work will vary according to the needs of the service and the specific work offered.

Additional hours worked are covered by NCC’s Additional Hours and Overtime Policy and Procedure.

Roles that are Scale H and above require prior approval for secondary employment and at Scale K upwards you will be required to work the hours to meet the demands of the job.

Teaching posts

Working hours are governed by the provisions of the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document.

Adult Learning posts

Hours would be variable and would be discussed as and when courses are being considered.

Roles that are Scale H and above require prior approval for secondary employment and at Scale K upwards you will be required to work the hours to meet the demands of the job.

Norfolk County Council is fully compliant with the European Working Time Directive which limits the maximum number of hours that can be worked to 48 hours per week over a 17-week period. However, a voluntary opt out from this part of the working time directive is available which allows employees to legally work more than the 48 hours should they wish to.

Job share

If the role you are applying for is a job share this means that the post is occupied by two or more people on a part time basis. In this arrangement you will need to be prepared to undertake the full range of duties for the post. Job sharing may also mean some variation in the precise allocation of duties to each job sharer.

If you are offered a post as a job share arrangement and no other suitable applicants apply for the post on that basis, the remaining hours of the post will be advertised. If NCC is unable to recruit to the other hours you will be offered the full hours of the position. If you decide not to accept these, we will be unable to proceed with your appointment. If one of the job sharers leaves the role the job share arrangement will be reviewed.
