FOI / 3797 / 2018 - Rank to roll process

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I can confirm that Essex County Fire & Rescue Service does hold this information.

Please find the response to your request below..

Initial request:.

Could I please submit a freedom of information request as follows:.

What percentage of your WM(A) fire safety officers were automatically promoted as Station Officers (WM(B)) during your recent Role to Rank process?.

Final response:.

The Rank to Role process moved our Service from a rank based structure to a role based system, following the National Joint Council 2005 agreement..

Although ECFRS moved from Rank to Role for pay purposes only, it continued to maintain a rank based structure. The role maps for Watch Managers A and B were the same, as they were for Station Managers A and B. The move from one system to another was not treated as a promotion process..
