Minutes:

The Director: Business Development submitted a report which considered the recruitment process for the post of Chief Executive and associated terms and conditions of the post in accordance with the council’s pay policy requirements.

It was proposed that the council embarked on this process with immediate effect.

 

The Director explained that an analysis of a range of chief executive posts had been undertaken and her report provided a job description in an appendix and proposed the level of a single point salary for the post. A suggested recruitment and selection timetable and process was also set out in the report.

 

Resolved Unanimously – (a) That the recruitment of a Chief Executive be carried out with immediate effect in line with the proposals outlined in the report and (b) that the terms and conditions of the post in accordance with the council’s pay policy requirements, also set out in the report, be approved.
