Support for parents

Along with our approach to flexible working we also offer additional support for new parents (both mums and dads) and parents who need to balance their work and home life to look after their children. Find out more about what we offer at the links below:

A number of the roles working for Cotswold District Council are employed by our company Publica. We share most of our policies and you can see the Publica policies here.

Learning and development

We want our people to enjoy their work and feel they have all the skills they need to do their job to the best of their ability. We recognise that learning and development opportunities are important; not only to enable us to recruit good people but also to grow, develop and retain our staff.

No matter which area of service you join, you will receive an induction that will help you settle into Cotswold District Council and your team. In addition, you will have access to a range of courses through our training platform.
