Organisational Review January 2019

(Report of the Chief Executive and Head of Paid Service)

Minutes:

To seek Member approval for the implementation of an organisational staffing structure for Tamworth Borough Council. Following the implementation of a new senior management structure in April 2018, it was evident that further organisational change would be necessary in order to align the Council’s overall staffing structure. In addition, this provided an opportunity to ensure that the Council’s team structure supported the achievement of corporate objectives and service delivery requirements. The organisational structure proposed in this report was based on the continued delivery of the full range of current Council services and placed the organisation in a positive position to maintain and improve the quality of service provision.

 

RESOLVED that the Committee:

·         Approved and adopted the proposed organisational structure for Tamworth Borough Council (detailed at Appendix A)

·         Approved the deletion of the posts identified at Appendix B

·         Approved the ring-fenced roles identified at Appendix C

·         Delegated implementation of the new structure identified at Appendix A (including consultation) to the Chief Executive and Head of Paid Service

 

RESOLVED that the Chief Executive would prepare a briefing note to be issued to all Councillors to advise them of the organisational change.
