  • The number of Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employees as at the end of quarter 4 has risen to 2649 which is an increase of 69compared to 2018/19. The increase during the year is due to a number of factors:


  • Recruitment of additional Social Workers to reduce the reliance on agency staff
  • Additional new starters in Building Control and planning due to ongoing pressures and filling historical vacant posts.
  • Restructuring in Highways resulting in a number of new lower graded posts being put into the structure.
  • A number of casual staff in leisure services who have now been contracted.
