We provide general information to PCCs about employment and safeguarding matters and signposts to useful resources. To support you in your journey, we have developed a parish toolkit.
This toolkit is enriched with new material to reflect any employment law changes. Should you require any further assistance, please contact a member of the HR and Safeguarding Team, their contact details can be found here.
We update this page with any relevant information on coronavirus below as/when applicable. When conducting interviews online, you must still ensure that as part of the process you comply with the rules on Right to Work (and Safer Recruitment as appropriate), making sure you verify the individual’s identity.
ACAS provides advice and template documents and has a helpline (0300 123 1100).
