Cabinet Member for Learning and Employability
“The County Council is committed to reducing reliance on agency staff wherever possible, but when it is necessary to call on them we expect an efficient, cost-effective service which provides the right people at the right time.
This contract continues that provision and gives the council the flexibility it needs, while providing small local businesses with an opportunity to supply services.”
Philip White, Cabinet Member for Learning and Employability
