Chris Griffin informed members that following the assessment process, 2 of the 3 candidates shortlisted considered worthy of interview.  1 of the candidates had since withdrawn as he had accepted another job.  There was therefore 1 candidate for members to interview.  Members agreed questions to be asked during the interview. 

 

Prior to the candidate being interviewed, Members discussed the size of the Appointments Committee and whether it was necessary to have 6 Members for the joint posts with the NHS.  There was general consensus that for joint posts with the NHS a sub-committee should be established comprising 3 members (2 Conservative, 1 Liberal Democrat) to be drawn from the Appointment Committee’s membership.

 

On being put to the vote it was

THAT for joint appointments with NHS Gloucestershire which are within the remit of the Appointments Committee, a sub-committee should be established comprising 3 Members (2 Conservative, 1 Liberal Democrat) to be drawn from the Appointments Committee’s membership and amendments to the Constitution be made accordingly.

The Committee then interviewed the candidate who had been shortlisted for the position and it was

 

RESOVLED

THAT Jonathan Hall be appointed to the post of Deputy Chief Fire Officer.
