  1. Hooray! Kind of.

    I'd been in a temporary promotion in my Local Authority for around 16 months that is presently due to end in April. However, I've just got a new permanent job at the same grade which means a bit more financial security for me even if it also means moving away from a great team into complete unknown territory.

    The new job is to lead a team administering discretionary payments from a static budget for people in crisis. Bearing in mind the hard times expected ahead in the UK because of the Government's Welfare Reform plans it's shaping up to be a very challenging role...

      The funds will be for people in financial hardship due to crisis and are not eligible for help from other Council departments or organisations with a duty of care. Some funds will be in the form of a loan but they will be interest free and it's unlikely crowbars will be necessary :-)
