Item 3 – Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive – Performance Appraisal and Development Scheme
Paragraph 1 - Information relating to an individual
Appraisal of Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive 2022-23
Consideration was given to a report of the Director of Transformation which outlined the Performance Appraisal and Development Scheme [PADS] that enabled CFRS to review an employee`s performance against delivery of agreed priorities/objectives, grade the contribution and performance, identify individual and organisational development needs, and support succession planning.
The PADS scheme operated from top to bottom across the whole of the Service and is particularly important at the top of the organisation, as Members seek to agree objectives with the Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive, which ensure delivery of the Service’s Integrated Risk Management Plan [IRMP].
For the purpose of independence Steve Mason from RealWorld HR facilitated the performance appraisal.
Members were asked to agree the key objectives and development needs for 2022-23, following discussions with the Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive, for the coming year.
The Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive’s interim appraisal discussion was scheduled to take place on 22nd March 2023.
 the Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive’s appraisal be agreed as discussed;
 the appraisal key objectives for 2023-24 be approved; and
 Members agree to carry out an interim appraisal discussion on 22 March 2023.
