Our employee benefits

We offer an attractive benefits package and a competitive salary

Flexible ways of working

We offer a range of working arrangements. These are designed to help you to fit work around your other responsibilities, balanced with the specific demands of your role.

At Hart, we encourage staff to enjoy a good work/life balance.

We have a flexi time scheme in place for staff and offer hybrid working for the majority of our roles.

Annual leave/holiday

Most Council employees start on 25 days annual leave (plus public holidays, and pro rata for part-time), increasing with length of service.

Pension scheme

We offer membership of the Hampshire Local Government Pension Scheme. More information is available on the Hampshire Pension Services website.

Professional fees

If you need a professional qualification as part of your job, we will pay your professional membership fees.

Health and wellbeing

We offer:

  • free flu jabs
  • free eye test vouchers
  • an employee assistance programme 24/7 to support your mental health and wellbeing

However you choose to travel to work, we also offer a cycle-to-work scheme and free car parking.


We are committed to volunteering and works across the district. The Hart Employee Volunteering Scheme enables all Council employees to get involved in volunteering in the local community. All staff are allowed two days (14.8 hours) pro-rata per year paid time off to volunteer.
