The Local Government Act 2002 requires the Council to employ a Chief Executive whose responsibilities are to employ other staff on behalf of the Council, to implement Council decisions and provide advice to the Council. 

Under the Local Government Act 2002, the Chief Executive is the only person who may lawfully give instructions to a staff member.  Any complaint about individual staff members should therefore be directed to the Chief Executive, rather than to councillors. 

Council management is organised into eight groups, representing the different functions that the Council has.
