"Working for Sedgemoor has given me to opportunity to help local people and make a real difference to our community. Local Government is a dynamic system, with a huge variety of services, therefore my role has allowed me to experience a range of different projects with no two days being the same. Working for Sedgemoor District Council has also given me the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the political system of Local Government."
"One of the great things about working as a graduate is that you get to collaborate with lots of different areas in the organisation, and at a high level. Working at Sedgemoor has given me the opportunity to team up with officers across multiple departments to work in partnership on projects and learn new skills and different areas of expertise. For example, I have worked with officers across different service areas to create our Climate Emergency Strategy. This project has enabled me to build my confidence and learn more about the bureaucratic processes within local government, while also implementing real change to help us and residents to reach the 2030 carbon neutrality target."

The scheme allows employers to hire cycles and cyclists safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit through a salary sacrifice scheme with a final payment being made at the end of the hire period (12 months) for the employee to buy the cycle (this final payment is not tax-free). For further details of the Cycle to Work Scheme, when the tax exemption would apply, and a list of participating cycle shops please email email@example.com
