Change of scene chance for public sector finance specialists

A four-way partnership is to promote short-term secondments for local authority officers to national bodies.

The Audit Commission, the Local Government Association, the Improvement and Development Agency and the Department of the Environment have all banded together to co-ordinate secondments as pressure increases on local authorities to provide staff.

The four bodies now have a number of initiatives under discussion including a joint website, running joint publicity campaigns and agreeing a single point of contact for enquiries.

In the meantime each body will continue to advertise secondments separately, with the Audit Commission in particular looking for best value inspectors.Wendy Thomson, director of inspection at the Audit Commission, said: ?Secondments provide real benefits for all those involved and should be seen as an important step on the path to senior management.?
