09/10/2020 - Arrangements to cover Curriculum Quality Leader/Business Development ICT post ref: 3370    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Chief Executive

Decision published: 12/10/2020

Effective from: 09/10/2020

Decision:

The ICT/Bespoke Curriculum Quality Leader (CQL) left the service at the end of March. There was a delay in recruiting to the post due to the circumstances surrounding Covid 19. The post was advertised in July and interviews held. Three applicants were invited back for a second interview but it was not possible to appoint. The post was advertised again in September and all the three new applicants were rejected at shortlisting stage. This has left a significant gap in the management of the ICT/Bespoke programme which has been covered during lockdown by the Senior Adult Learning Manager (SALM) with overall responsibility for all curriculum areas across the service. As Adult Learning returns to the classroom together with the critical period of writing the annual Self-Assessment Report, Observations of Teaching and Learning etc., it is vital that arrangements are put in place to manage this work. Thought has been given in the interim to separate the two areas of work within this role. The Business Development work can in the medium term be supported by other team members however the management of the ICT area is key.

29/09/2020 - recruit a SSW/Assessor on a temporary basis to support the assessment service ref: 3354    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Director of Operations

Decision published: 07/10/2020

Effective from: 29/09/2020

Decision:

Within fostering we have been promoting recruitment of new foster carers which will save money for the council if we provide in house placements rather than moving children to IFA’s often outside of the local area. We have funding remaining in the Transformation Fund and would like to recruit a SSW/Assessor on a temporary basis to support the assessment service so we are not keeping applicants waiting to be assessed and approved as foster carers. This post will help us to create more capacity within the team and move carers through to approval more efficiently. This post is in addition to the workers that we already have in the team it is not a vacant post.

18/09/2020 - Recruitment assistant post – 12 months fixed term contract ref: 3353    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Director of Operations

Decision published: 07/10/2020

Effective from: 18/09/2020

Decision:

A meeting has been held with Sue Harris, Emma Appleby and Lorraine Jones to discuss the funding that is being utilised in Fostering from the Transformation Fund. An agency Marketing manager is currently being paid out of this fund. Following a review of the Fostering Service it is now felt that the next stage of the recruitment and marketing strategy to recruit new foster carers would be to employ a level 6 recruitment assistant to support the recruitment officer currently in post. This would be cost effective and assist the service in promoting fostering in Bury. An apprentice who is currently working for Bury and has been interviewed as part of admin recruitment has been identified as a potential candidate for the role. We are therefore seeking permission to establish a recruitment officer post on a fixed term contract for 1 year. This would not be at any additional cost to the council.
