C3451          SENIOR MANAGEMENT RESTRUCTURE – SOCIAL SERVICES DIRECTORATE (L & HSCH) (SCRUTINY COMMITTEE – CORPORATE PERFORMANCE AND RESOURCES) -     

 

Cabinet's approval was sought to agree changes to the senior management structure within the Social Services Directorate and the commencement of a recruitment process for the post of Director of Social Services.

 

The Director of Social Services had indicated his intention to retire during 2017 to enable a top down review of the Social Services Directorate and to facilitate effective succession planning arrangements.

 

The current senior management structure within the Directorate had been in place for a number of years, comprising the statutory role of Director of Social Services and three functional divisions. A copy of the existing structure was attached at Appendix 1 to the report.

 

A copy of the suggested new structure chart that set out the detail of the proposed changes was attached at Appendix 2 to the report. A summary of the rationale and detail of the changes was set out within the report.

 

At the meeting, the Leader highlighted the letter from the Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales attached at Appendix 3 to the report, which approved the proposal for a reduction to the salary of the Director of Social Services which would put the post on a pay scale on a parity with other Directors of the Council.
