At present Kent & Essex IFCA employs 14 full time staff, 1 part-time staff member and a part time financial advisor. In addition to this the Authority also contributes to the services of the Clerk, Chairman and Vice-chairman. The structure and key roles of each member of staff are laid out in Dig.4. One of the areas that KEIFCA are trying to develop in the organisation as we move into our fourth year is the ability of each officer to take on each other’s roles, and expand their knowledge base so that each officer is competent in a wide spectrum of new roles and duties. This approach will give KEIFCA a huge amount of flexibility in being able to deliver all KEIFCA’s new duties and react to events.
