Employee benefits

Cambrian savings and loans

Cambrian Credit Union (external website) offers a variety of savings accounts and personal loans to people living and working in North Wales and Powys.

DCC Rewards Direct

The exclusive DCC Rewards Direct programme gives you access to all of the savings and benefits that come from being an employee of Denbighshire County Council.

Employees can start saving by visiting the DCC Rewards Direct website (external website) and registering using their Payroll Number and Scheme ID Number 6200.

There are a great range of Lifestyle Savings available online or in the high street, nationwide and in your local area on your groceries, holidays, eating out, DIY, electrics, insurance, motoring and more. There are 1,000s of offers available which can save you £100s on your everyday shopping. Save using cashback, online discounts, telephone shopping and your Vectis Card for in-store discounts.

You can also save on your childcare costs through the Salary Sacrifice scheme available to you. Salary Sacrifice is a fantastic way for you to save by forgoing a portion of your salary (which becomes exempt from National Insurance and Tax) meaning you are then provided with a great non-cash benefit.

In addition to the Lifestyle Benefits mentioned above, we also offer other benefits which include:

  • competitive pension scheme
  • generous annual leave allowance and the opportunity to purchase additional annual leave (excluding Teachers and Term Time Only employees)
  • corporate Denbighshire Leisure membership
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • medical cover schemes
  • car salary sacrifice scheme and car leasing scheme. Details of the car leasing scheme can be obtained by contacting Fleet Services on 01824 708460
  • purchase Microsoft Office for your home computer at a reduced price
  • save money on Arriva Buses
  • Cambrian Credit Union
  • Give as you Earn

Want to improve your pension benefits when you retire?

You can now join Prudential’s new Shared Cost Salary Sacrifice AVC’s scheme and DCC will also contribute into your AVC fund through a Salary Sacrifice arrangement. This means that you could save both Tax & NI contributions on your AVC payments. It's never too early to start thinking about the kind of lifestyle you want when you stop working.

In addition to your main Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) benefits, Salary Sacrifice Shared Cost Additional Voluntary Contributions (SSSCAVCs) could help you do this by providing an extra retirement benefit.
