Unexpected peaks in workload, urgent project deadlines, unplanned staff absences…perhaps we can help. Why not email to ask us?
RSN aims to help its members to source appropriate professional expertise without the additional expense and inflexibility often associated with agency recruitment. The two main areas where we offer value-for- money professional expertise are in supplying locum cover and in assisting with community development projects.
Do you need short-term professional locum assistance on Financial, Economic Development or Performance issues?
RSN offers the following service to each member authority on an annual basis:
• Response advice on any Financial, Performance or Economic Development issue completely free of charge (subject to a maximum of 3 hours professional input)
• Work on finance, performance or economic development issues, up to a maximum of 15 hours (two working days) per member authority per subscription year, at a nominal rate of £150. Further subsidised advice on these issues can be provided at a rate of only £300 per day for a further 3 days.
Work carried out under this heading will be in the form of a contract between RSN/Sparse Rural and the individual professional consultant who would be required to accept full professional liability for his/her own work. Participating Authorities would need to confirm their acceptance of that arrangement.
Is help needed for more than 5 days? We will, wherever possible, suggest someone from our practitioner consultancy group of economic development, community development, finance and performance specialists (all known to RSN) who may be able to fulfil your requirements.
Is help needed in a different specialism? Whilst we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to source appropriate expertise we will do our best to try to help.
