Senior Management Review - Pre-application Workshops

the wheels came off the senior management team a long time ago

In advance of the upcoming recruitment exercise for the new senior management structure the council has organised for Penna to deliver pre-application workshops which senior managers are invited to attend.
The workshop is designed to help senior managers prepare for the application, interview and assessment processes. Firstly, the sessions will look at how senior managers can prepare themselves to make the best possible application for a given role. The sessions will also look at ways to prepare for interviews in general and the technical interview in particular. Finally, it will look at how the assessment day is structured, providing some thoughts on how to prepare for an assessment process and how to maximise performance on the day.
The workshops will last for 1 hour and 30 minutes and will be running in the week prior to recruitment opening with two additional dates available during the campaign live period. Workshops will be run onsite at Barnet offices.
If you are a senior manager and have received an email inviting you to do so, you can book your place on a workshop by filling in this booking form where you will see the times, dates and locations available. Once complete, please send your booking form to Penna via email at barnet@penna.com.

Penna hopes to be able to accommodate your first choice however please ensure you supply a second choice of date and time in case your first choice is fully booked.
To ensure best choice of workshop time and date, please return the booking form to Penna by Wednesday 2 May. You will be sent confirmation or asked to rebook within 24 hours. If you are not able to return the form by this date, you will still be able to attend a workshop but your choice of dates could be limited.
For further information on the review, keep checking this link. It will be updated over the coming days and weeks with further information as and when it becomes available.
It is a worry when staff earning over £100,000 a year need their hand holding to this extent. A similar service has not been extended to less senior staff outside of this exercise who have had at risk of redundancy letters. Mr Reasonable has written in the past about a culture of dependency on consultants. He was right.
Yours frugally
Mr Mustard
