Consultation process

Consultation with UNISON and the affected individuals takes place. It also provides for corporate resources to be made available to assist in the search for alternative employment both inside and externally to the Council. Job descriptions and CV details, as available, are used for corporate reference and all emerging vacancies are scrutinised in efforts to identify suitable alternative work. Other reasonable support, in the form of counselling and targeted skills’ improvement through coaching and training, can be sourced to maximise the chances of redeployment.
