To consider a report of the Group Manager for Human Resources informing Members of the overall structure of the Council showing the management and deployment of officers.
The Cabinet had before it a *report of the Group Manager for Human Resources outlining the overall structure of the Council showing the management and deployment of officers.
The Cabinet Member for the Working Environment and Support Services outlined the contents of the report stating that a significant amount of change had taken place in the last 12 months with the introduction of the Group Manager cohort who were all being asked to undertake a comprehensive review of their service area.
