The Grapevine and Shop & Save

*Please note that advertising in the Grapevine is currently on hold. However, we are continuing our free business listing offering our staff your discount.

The Grapevine is the council’s employee magazine and main internal communication tool. Published monthly on our internal staff platform and can also be viewed online 24/7. The magazine is available to all our 14,000 employees. The Grapevine features staff news, information, events, interviews, teamwork and the Shop & Save scheme - the council’s employee discount scheme. 

Shop & Save is featured as part of The Grapevine, and is the council’s employee discount scheme and is open to current employees and foster carers. The scheme is free to join and automatically entitles members to a 25 word text-only listing in Grapevine; all we ask is that you offer an exclusive discount or incentive.

The opportunity to upgrade your listing is available with a range of pricing options (see the table below) allowing you to enhance your listing with eye-catching graphics in a larger advertising space to improve your presence. Discounts are also available for multiple bookings.
