Communications and Reputation Manager Post Task and Finish Forum

What does this Forum do?

The Overview and Scrutiny  Committee can set up a Forum to specifically undertake a detailed review into a topic.  Membership can be drawn from the entire Council to best use the skills of individual Councillors.  Experts and witnesses can be called to provide evidence to the Forum.  The Forum produces a final report, containing recommendations, for the Overview and Scrutiny Committee to consider.  If agreed, these recommendations go on to the Cabinet and/or Council for a decision.

In this case, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee got agreement from the Cabinet to delay a decision on the new post of Communications and Reputation Manager until a brief Forum had been held to look closely at the job description.  The Forum want to be sure that the post will deliver value for money and meet the needs of the Council and its new Plan.

This Forum has now completed its work and their PDF file recommendations reported to Cabinet on 13 June 2012. (46KB Portable Document Format - 06 September 2012 - PDF Help)
