OD-16-73 Recruitment to two roles in Senior Managers Group

Following an unsuccessful attempt to recruit to the Head of Finance and Revenues and Finance Operations Manager in 2016 the Council needs to appoint a new recruitment firm to support it to find quality candidates that meet its requirements. Penna has been chosen as they are the only firm with a partnership with CIPFA thus having access to the whole CIPFA membership. The cost for both roles combined is less than £25,000 including advertising which is known to be competitive for this type of recruitment support following gathering of quotes in the last two years.


The Leader of the Council and Chief Executive have been consulted in this decision.
