Summary of policy aims This is one of the Savings options being considered by Housing and Communities as part of their Recovery and Renewal Service Redesign (Phase 2). This Savings Line plans to delete existing posts through existing workforce planning options and re-profile other job roles and vacancies:

(Part a) Deletion of G10 Community Investment Officer [CIO] (approved); 0.5 FTE G10 Team Coordinator [TC] (YPSD); 2 x Outdoor Services Operatives [OSO] (Currently Vacant);

(Part b) Business Support Review; Re-profiling of HRA/General Fund Posts. HRA budget will be re-profiled as appropriate.
Key issues Females employees over 50 are like to be impacted more if we are reducing the business support provision.

Workforce Planning Polices are specifically designed to be advantageous to those over 50, in particularly the retirement options policies. We aim only to let go, those who wish to take advantage of the Workforce Planning Policies. We aim to support staff to take up other opportunities within Housing and Communities, creating a potential new career pathway / promoted options for the staff member.
