Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Children & Families agreed to:

• note the content of the report and support the proposals detailed regarding the appointment of a Data Accelerator Analyst and Practice Improvement Coordinator.

• approve the creation of the following posts within Early Help, to be based within the Families First Team;

• 1FTE Data Accelerator Analyst - £51,524 (PO4 incl. on costs)
• 1FTE Practice Improvement Coordinator - £51,524 (PO4 incl. on costs)

Due to current LCC financial pressures it is proposed that these posts are offered on a fixed term contract basis for a period of 12 months.
The recruitment and selection process for these posts will commence May 2022 with a start date not before June 2022.
As these posts will be available for a 12 month period, a secondment model will be the preferred approach and applications will be sought from both within and outside of the council, eg health.
