Suppliers will be asked to provide the highest quality, suitably qualified staff to meet the Council’s specific requirements, these staff will be employed by the Agency under Swedish Derogation. These requirements include the provision of the temporary staff at either 1 working day’s notice or in some circumstances at 30 minutes notice. The Supplier will also be required to transport their staff to either the Council’s Depot (Littlethorpe, Leicester) or the place of work (should work have already started). Suppliers should note that staff may be required to work unsociable hours which would therefore require transport to be provided during those unsociable hours. Staff provided by the Supplier must meet the levels of experience and training required by the Council and other requirements to be detailed in the Specification. The service is an essential component in the internal organisation of Blaby District Council.
