York Council moves on vacant Chief Executive post

With the Chief Executive post at the York Council due to become vacant on 31st July, the Council is set to appoint a selection team as it bids to find a successor to Kersten England (right)

Chief Executive Kersten England will leave the York Council in July.

Chief Executive Kersten England will leave the York Council in July.

The Council will initially look to make an interim appointment from within its existing pool of senior managers

In a break with tradition, other non Council employees will also be able to apply to be considered for the temporary post. The post could continue in existence for as long as 9 months.

On this occasion the new Council has obviously decided not to go down the (expensive) route of using a consultant to fill the interim post.

In a report to a meeting taking place on 8th June the Council says,

To ensure that external candidates can also be considered for the opportunity the post will be advertised on City of York Council Jobs Website, this approach would mean there would be no additional recruitment costs. It is proposed that the opportunity will be advertised on the 8th June with a closing date of 19th June and that interviews are held on the 26th June 2015”.

Any appointment would be subject to ratification by the full Council.

Pay for the post is expected to be around £130,000 a year (pro rata)

Interviews would be conducted by a 3 person panel representing the main political groups on the Council.

It is anticipated that a restructure of the senior management team at the Council will take place before a new permanent Chief Executive takes up post early next year.
