Skills audit - complete the survey

Keeping our residents and customers informed

As part of the council's preparations to deal with the challenges of coronavirus, all staff are asked to complete a skills audit as soon as possible.

This will help with plans to maintain essential services while the workforce is reduced, and will identify employees who are working in non-time-critical roles who can do different jobs to support colleagues who are facing an increase in their workload.

The skills matrix will be used to identify staff who could potentially be used in ways other than their normal roles, based on their skills and experiences, if the situation arises.
