Based on their experience of supporting local authorities across the UK, our panel of industry experts shared their experience and examined issues such as the current increase in permanent vacancies and how the pressure on the incumbent workforce is at an all-time high.

This webinar looked into the alternative ways in which local authorities can reduce the ‘impact of the empty chair’ looking at solutions already in use.
