The Council is responsible for employing the Chief Executive and its principal relationship is with the Chief Executive.
The Chief Executive is responsible for establishing and maintaining the operational structure of the Council. A group of senior managers, who are called the “executive management team”, manage key work programmes.
Council staff provide the elected members with policy advice and implement policies under the direction of the Chief Executive. They decide the operational approach needed to complete the Council’s policies and to achieve the results the Council wants.
Elected Members (Councillors) cannot direct Council staff.
