Car benefit scheme

Swale Borough Council are pleased to announce an additional benefit for employees. We have collaborated with Tusker to provide a Car Benefit Scheme. As an employee benefit, you get to offset some of your salary before it gets taxed in exchange for a brand new car. 

The fixed monthly deduction from your salary includes all the running costs (apart from fuel) of your brand new car. That includes insurance, all servicing, maintenance and repairs, replacement tyres and breakdown cover. So you never have to face a big garage bill again.
