Succession planning toolkit

  • The People Programme has been running a project looking at Leadership within the UK FRS and last year published the NFCC Leadership Framework. Since then it has been working at how to support the implementation of the framework. This Succession Planning Toolkit is a result of that work and has been developed by HR professionals over the summer of 2019.
  • It is a compilation of different tools and approaches used across a number of FRS. The HMICFRS inspection outcomes highlighted succession planning as an area requiring improvement so this is our first step towards supporting FRSs to address this. We are very keen to hear whether there is other good practice being used that could be included or whether you have feedback on the materials provided in this first draft.
  • The close date for this consultation is 10th January 2020.

  • Delivery date – January 2020

Recruitment toolkit: Description

  • An online repository of good practice, templates, case studies and guidance to support services in recruitment and promotion processes that will be draw on the leadership behaviours where relevant.
  • Progress – Andrea Harvey, Cheshire FRS is leading on this piece and has drawn together some good material but requires contributions from other FRSs. Please view the the temporary site. Any contributions can be emailed to recruitmenttoolkit@cheshirefire.gov.uk.

360-degree feedback online tool: Description

  • An online tool based on the leadership behaviours available for all FRSs to use to carry out 360-degree feedback with their staff.
