COUNCIL bosses are set to hire a head of change and innovation on £75,000 — in a year when 100 staff will lose their jobs.
The new role — described as critical by Rotherham Borough Council — will involve “making savings while driving innovation,” the job advert says.
RMBC approved its budget for 2017/18 two weeks ago, pledging to prioritise social care amid £15 million more Government cuts.
The job advert for head of change and innovation says: “Rotherham is changing. Driving this change is a council that’s passionate about putting Rotherham on the map for all the right reasons.
“Now you’ll take us even further by bringing the same commitment, tenacity and ambition to this critical role.”
