Appointment of a Corporate Director pdf icon PDF 30 KB

For Members, in conjunction with the Chief Executive, to advise of their appointment to the role of Corporate Director.


It may be necessary to exclude the public (including the press) from discussion on this item due to the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in the paragraphs of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).



Agenda Item 6 has been identified as containing information which would be exempt from disclosure under paragraph 1 of Schedule 12A, Part 1, of the Local Government Act 1972 in that it contains personal information relating to individuals who have participated in the recent recruitment process. Furthermore, the public interest test has been applied to the information contained within the report and it is considered that the need to retain the information as exempt outweighs the public interest in disclosing it.


Members considered their decision on who to appoint to the Corporate Director post from the candidates who participated in the final interview. It was agreed that should the chosen candidate not take up the role for whatever reason, the recruitment process would begin again.


Members appointed to the Corporate Director role subject to satisfactory references and employment checks.
