Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Chief Executive which presented proposals to establish a post of Strategic Lead for Early Years. The report stated that the post would take on the responsibility of leading the Council’s ongoing development, transformation and delivery of the Early Years strategy and associated priorities.

 

The key responsibilities of the post were outlined in the report. The Director and Deputy Director – HROD both responded to a question from a member about how the post had been developed, noting that it had previously been assumed from a since disestablished role with a higher salary.

The Committee was assured that the role had been through the Council’s Job Evaluation scheme and had subsequently been determined to be at a salary that was commensurate with SS1.

 

No Trade Union comments were submitted for consideration. The Committee agreed the recommendation to approve the creation of the post.
