Performance Review


Ceredigion County Council recognises the need to continually improve the delivery of its services and its own internal operations. A key element in achieving this aim is to make the best use of its employees, their skill and their potential. To ensure that this is the case, all Council employees must take part in an annual Performance Review. The performance review should enable you to discuss, with your manager, your job performance, your future and the discussion should aim for a clearer understanding of:

  • The main scope and purpose of your job.
  • Agreements on your objectives and tasks.
  • Standards or targets for measuring your performance.
  • Your training and future development. needs
