Leader of the Council – Minutes – 27 March 2018

The corresponding report of the following item (Minute 13 refers) contains exempt information as defined in Paragraphs 1 and 2 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).

13 (13) NEW STAFFING ESTABLISHMENT FOR PARTICIPATION AND ACHIEVEMENT – The Director: Learning, Skills and Culture submitted a report seeking approval to establish the second phase of the staffing structure within Participation and Achievement.

Participation and Achievement was established on 1 June 2017.  The Participation and Achievement portfolio had brought together various teams within the council.

The second phase of the new staffing structure would support and deliver a greater emphasis on the commercial agenda and the transformation of service delivery. 

The establishment of both phases of the staffing structure for Participation and Achievement was underpinned by the following core principles:

• increasing customer focus and responsiveness to local need
• providing high quality services that were commercially viable
• empowering communities to help themselves
• developing an effective and aspirational workforce

Resolved – That the establishment of the staffing structure reporting to the Head of Participation and Achievement, as set out in the report and accompanying appendix, be approved.

Where there is no report this is because it is exempt, as it contains information which is considered to be of a confidential nature, as detailed in the Local Government (Access to Information) Act.
