Penarth Town Council has published further details of the six new staff posts it has created – replacing five former staff posts whose holders have left the council under a severance scheme.
The council says “ 6 new roles have been created” and that “existing roles have been adapted and extended to meet the needs of the council”.
The new members of staff (see photo above) are named as Sacha Mazloom, Louis Grant and Nathan Smith (Duty Officers), Harriet Brewster (Customer Support Officer), Kerry-Leigh Hughes (Finance and HR Officer), Victoria Lawrence (Core Services Manager) and Abby Woods (Civic Support Officer). It’s understood that one of the new members of staff is Welsh-speaking.
Penarth Town Council says ” The changes come after an extensive internal consultation. ”
