Updated guidance on recruitment and redeployment in relation to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic

In recognition of the fact that many of the key worker posts will involve working with vulnerable groups specific guidance has been developed in relation to Icon for word recruitment of staff pending PVG check [18.54KB] along with a Icon for word PVG Risk Assessment Form (COVID-19 Emergency Cover Only) [17.87KB].  It is important to note that this guidance relates only to key worker posts required for the COVID-19 emergency response.
