System access for Blackpool Council permanent/temporary employees and casual workers:
> Logging on while connected to the council network on a council device: Select the PURPLE Blackpool Council Staff button; this should take you straight into your account without the need for a password.
> Logging on while NOT on the council’s network or on a PERSONAL device: Select the PURPLE Blackpool Council Staff button. You will be asked for your ICT Network username and password after selecting the purple button; this is the username and password that you use to log onto your work device; you can contact Blackpool Council's ICT department for this information if unsure.
Early Access: If you've not started with us yet but have your username/password, you are classed as 'early access' and your login details should be on your welcome letter.
