Senior Management Team

The Senior Management Team is jointly responsible for the management of Ochil Tower and are accountable to the Board of Trustees, the Care Inspectorate and other statutory bodies. Jointly they would need to demonstrate an awareness of all management issues, relevant legislation and guidelines and the ability to act decisively and effectively in any given situation.

Individually they would need to show the ability to carry overall responsibility for Ochil Tower and demonstrate relevant skills and experience to manage the specific areas of responsibility each member of the Senior Management Team has been allocated. Each member of the Senior Management Team, acting within a frame of consensus, is authorised by the other members to carry out the obligations inherent in the areas of work for which he or she accepts responsibility and is given the mandate to ensure that decisions taken are implemented according to agreed policies and standards.

The members of the Senior Management Team are jointly responsible for setting standards, ensuring that all are aware of these standards and that they are implemented. They are also responsible for taking appropriate action where there is a failure to comply.
