West Lothian College
We are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer and a Living Wage Accredited Employer. We also hold Gold ‘Investors in People’ status and the NHS ‘Healthy Working Lives’ Silver Award.
By joining the college, you will be working with colleagues who are enthusiastic about their job and feel well supported by their managers and their team.
Our standard working hours are 35 hours per week with opportunities to work flexibly also being available.
You will be well rewarded with a competitive rate of pay and generous holiday entitlement. This is 62 days for Lecturing staff and 45 days for Support Staff.
Your professional skills and development will be supported through the college’s Personal Learning Plan approach to encourage you to further enhance your skills, including support available to fund and attend training.
You will benefit from a career-average revalued earnings pension scheme which includes life cover and pension for your close dependents and ill health cover. For Support Staff this is the Local Government Pension Scheme administered by the Lothian Pension Fund (LPF) and for Lecturers this is the Scottish Teachers’ Superannuation Scheme administered by Scottish Public Pensions Agency (SPPA).
Your wellbeing will be promoted through options for discounted/free gym membership, wellbeing events, health cover plus access to a free employee assistance service, employee counselling service and physiotherapy.
You can also take advantage of the college’s employee benefits scheme which offers opportunities for valuable savings on a whole range of products and services.
A salary sacrifice arrangement is in place with our Cycle to Work scheme offering savings on a bike itself and cycling accessories. Because you don’t pay tax or National Insurance on the vouchers, you can save up to £320 per year.
A list of all our employee benefits and a summary of conditions of service can be found on our job adverts under the ‘job attachments’ section.
