Highland Council Senior Posts to be Advertised

Advertisements for the recruitment of a Depute Chief Executive and for a replacement Executive Chief Officer Health and Social Care (ECO H&SC) will go to press in two national papers, week commencing 17 August.

The revised structure of the executive team was agreed by full Council on 9 May 2019, including the post of Chief Operating Officer/Depute CEO, with a salary agreed at previous Director level. 

The appointment of senior officers is a decision for senior members.

A meeting of the recruitment panel chaired by the Convener, on 15 May 2019, agreed the recruitment of a Chief Operating Officer/Depute Chief Executive would proceed and the post was first advertised on 13 August 2019, however a suitable candidate was not shortlisted.

Following pauses in the recruitment of the Depute Chief Executive, the Administration agreed that this and the ECO H&SC posts should be now re-advertised at the same time to save advertising costs.

The posts can be seen on MyJobScotland in advance of press adverts which are scheduled for week commencing 17 August.
