Bristol councillors criticise senior management recruitment

Concerns have again been raised, following a critical report from councillors, regarding the senior management roles at Bristol City Council.

Details of the report include:

  • Concern about the number of senior managers leaving post
  • 14 senior role vacancies, many with temporary appointments at senior management level
  • Continued failure to produce a future plan for the council
  • Poor communication of detailed information for council departments
  • Delays in appointing a new head of paid service and replacement chief executive.

It is expected to be considered at the council cabinet meeting next week.

Conservative councillor Geoff Gollop told BBC Radio Bristol that councillors want to know what the plans are to resolve the council's recruitment issues.
