It has also emerged that more than £40,000 has been spent on consultants brought in to help staff "develop leadership competencies"

  1. We have plenty in Barnet. Our Deputy Chief Executive and Section 151 Officier is an interim manager and in the three months Sept-Dec he was paid £63,000. In addition we have an assistant commercial director £156,000, and a Resourcing, Performance & Talent Manager on £108,000. Those are just the ones we know about!
