COVID-19 Recruitment Update

Executive Recruitment and Assessment

Solace’s permanent recruitment team are proactively working with clients to progress senior recruitment processes wherever possible and as far as is practicable. We are adapting our services to make best use of video conferencing and remote assessment techniques to ensure that health concerns are prioritised and adherence to the latest Government guidance is observed.

For formal Member appointment processes, our clients are making the difficult choice to suspend the final stages of recruitment for the time being and we are supporting clients and candidates through this.

Interim Management

From our conversations with many of you, we are starting to build up a picture of where you may need short term support, following the Covid-19 outbreak. We are working hard, at this time, to engage with our interim managers/consultants to mobilise this support. We can provide experienced local government professionals on a short to medium-term basis, to help you deliver essential services to residents, as well as to support your staff in dealing with crisis management, emergency planning, and workforce planning. Please contact Jessica Mullinger on 07780 992460 for more detail.
