Temporary Staff Contract

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


This report discusses arrangements for temporary staff i.e. agency workers across a number of services.


The current contract for Temporary Staff is coming to an end in April and proposes options for the future procurement of temporary staff arrangements.


Cabinet approved Option 3 as described in section 3 of the report which was to competitively procure a temporary staff contract via a framework with an approximate value of £1.3m per annum.

Reasons for the decision:

Without the availability of temporary staff, key functions would be left short of staff.

Alternative options considered:

Short fixed term contracts are hard to recruit to and do not offer flexibility required.
