The Local Government Pension Scheme is one of the largest public sector pension schemes in the UK. It is a nationwide pension scheme of 3.5 million members working in local government or working for other types of employer participating in the scheme. The LGPS is a defined benefit scheme which means that your pension will continue to be worked out using a set formula and it is guaranteed by the government. On starting your employment, you will be automatically entered into the pension scheme. We will provide you with further information within your starter pack.

Employee Assistance Programme
Life – there’s a lot to juggle. Work, family, relationships, finances, health, the list goes on. Sometimes, meeting the demands of your work and personal life can be a real challenge. As your employer, we recognise this and therefore feel it is important that we provide you with an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to help take the strain when you need some extra support. Your EAP can save you time, and help reduce stress and anxiety, improving your well-being and freeing you up to focus on other things.
My Health programme
This scheme offers physiotherapy, counselling, nutrition and lifestyle coaching and clinic-based assessments. All services are chargeable but are offered at a competitive price.
Eye care voucher scheme
Eye tests will be provided to ensure users can comfortably see the screen and work effectively without visual fatigue. If the test shows that the user requires glasses specifically for DSE work, the Trust will cover the cost of these glasses.
Green car scheme
Tusker is a salary sacrifice scheme that offers employees the opportunity to offset salary in exchange for a brand new electric or hybrid car. The scheme will contribute to the GLT commitment to reducing emissions and improving its carbon footprint.
