Blended working

The Council is committed to providing flexibility wherever possible to help employees balance their home lives and work commitments.

For many roles, this includes the opportunity for “blended working” - enabling employees to combine office working with remote working, for example from their homes or other locations.

Blended working provides levels of flexibility about where, when and how staff in suitable roles carry out their work as part of the Council’s approach to being an agile organisation.

COVID-19 Vaccination requirements

As you may already be aware, the Government has passed legislation to make it a legal requirement for all staff who undertake work in a Care Quality Commission registered care home, to be fully vaccinated, from 11 November 2021.

We’ve put together some useful information below.

Legal requirements

As you may already be aware, the Government has now passed legislation to make it a legal requirement for all staff who undertake work in a Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered care home, regardless of their profession, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless they have a medical exemption.

The requirement to be vaccinated will apply to all workers aged 18 or over who enter the indoor premises of a CQC registered care home to work. There is an exception where the worker can show that they have a genuine medical exemption, and a temporary exemption will be available for pregnant women should they choose to take it.

There will be no medical exemption for individuals solely on the basis that they are trying to conceive or are breastfeeding. In addition, there will be no exemption on religious grounds.

Timetable

The legislation will come into force on 11 November 2021, which will be the deadline for CQC registered care home staff to be fully vaccinated. This means that if you undertake work in a CQC registered care home you should have already received your first dose and should receive your second dose and be fully vaccinated by the deadline of 11 November 2021. If you have not received both vaccinations by the deadline date you will be unable to work within a care home.

How to provide proof of vaccination

All staff that undertake work in a CQC registered care home will need to provide evidence of their vaccination status, or evidence that they are medically exempt. Proof of vaccination can be obtained from the following three options:

  • Downloading the NHS App The NHS App is available now on iOS and Android. To use it you must be aged 13 and over and registered with a GP surgery in England.
  • Using the online NHS COVID Pass service You will need an NHS login to use these services. You'll be asked to create one if you do not have an NHS login already. To obtain the pass, enter your NHS log in details, when you see the screen below, choose Travel and choose Download PDF copy.

  • Calling 119 and request an NHS COVID Pass letter. You should get the letter within 5 working days. You do not need to be registered with a GP surgery or have an NHS login for this. Further information is available at nhs.uk.
When to provide proof of vaccination

As part of the Council's recruitment process, applicants who have applied for a vacancy that requires a full COVID-19 vaccination will be asked to provide evidence of their COVID Pass or medical exemption during the interview process.

  • In person interviews will require the applicant to provide evidence of a full COVID-19 vaccination or medical exemption in person. Copies of this evidence will be taken and kept in line with the Councils retention policy.
  • Virtual interviews will require the applicant to show evidence of a full COVID-19 vaccination or medical exemption on the screen via video link.
Exemptions

A new NHS COVID pass system is currently being developed to provide formal exemption evidence. If this applies to you, you will have 12 weeks from when this system is launched to obtain formal medical exemption evidence.

In the meantime, if you believe you are medically exempt and undertake work in a CQC registered care home, you will be required to self-certify that you meet the medical exemption criteria. Exemptions may include: terminal illness, a learning difficulty, autism, allergy to the vaccine or if you have had an adverse reaction to the first dose. Full details can be seen on the Government's website. Time-limited exemptions will also be available for those with short-term medical conditions (e.g. people receiving hospital care or receiving medication which may interact with the vaccination). A time-limited exemption is also available for pregnant women should they choose to take it.

Each of the approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna) has a list of exemptions for conditions under the section special warnings and precautions for use. These conditions may also be considered as appropriate medical exemption. Details of these special warnings and precautions can be found as follows:

  • Pfizer – please see section 4.4
  • AstraZeneca – please see section 2
  • Moderna (Spikevax) – please see section 4.4

If this applies to you, you will need to complete the COVID vaccine medical exemption form.

Individuals that have been vaccinated abroad against COVID-19

If you have received a COVID-19 vaccination abroad you can also self-certify as medically exempt. This is because it is not clinically appropriate for you to be vaccinated in the UK if you have already received a partial or full course of vaccination overseas.

If this applies to you, you will need to complete the COVID vaccine medical exemption form for people vaccinated abroad.

The suitability of all prospective employees or volunteers will be assessed during the recruitment process in line with this commitment.

Criminal record

Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offences.

Health and Safety

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act, 1974 and other associated legislation places responsibilities for Health and Safety on all employees. Therefore it is the postholder’s responsibility to take reasonable care for Health and Safety and Welfare of him/herself and other employees in accordance with legislation.

Confidential information

The duties set out in the Job Outline may involve having access to information of a confidential nature which may be covered by the Data Protection Act, and by Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act, 1972. Confidentiality must be maintained at all times.

English Language Requirements for Public Sector Workers

Section 42 of the Immigration Act 2016 requires that the Council ensures that all customer facing staff are able to speak an appropriate standard of English; therefore any applicants for customer facing posts will be assessed on this basis as part of the interview process.

Driving posts

If this post requires a valid driving licence and a council vehicle is to be driven, the postholder must be eligible for unrestricted cover under the Council’s insurance policy.

Newly qualified Social Workers/Assessment Officers

If the post you have applied for requires a social work qualification and you have completed your social work qualification within the last 2 years, it will be requirement of employment that you complete the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE).

Pay Adjustment for Term Time Only Posts

Please note that for term time only vacancies where the commencement date is part way through a school year, if you are appointed, your annual leave entitlement in your first year of employment will be pro rata to the actual number of days worked in the school year up to 31 August. This means that payroll will adjust your pay in the first year by creating a term time adjustment that will reduce pay to the correct level over the remaining months to 31 August pay to ensure you are not overpaid for leave you have not accrued. Therefore your actual monthly salary payments for your first year until 31 August will be lower than one twelfth of the salary quoted for the post.

Schools Unsuccessful Applicant Clause

Schools do not have the resources to send individual notifications to all applicants who are not shortlisted so if you have not been contacted within 2 weeks of the closing date you should assume you have been unsuccessful.
