Additional documents:


In December 2020 the Panel had agreed the Chief Officer structure. The Panel was responsible for dealing with HR matters relating to Deputy Chief Officers including their appointment and on 1 October 2021, had appointed a range of Deputy Chief Officers as part of the new structure.


Two further appointments were required to deputy Chief Officer roles:


Senior Manager Strategic Advisor Tier 2 (Planning)

Senior Manager Strategic Advisor Tier 2 (Electoral and Democratic)


The Chief Officer, Place and Governance advised the panel that the recommendation was for two posts, however Steve Tucker no longer wants to take up the post for Electoral and Democratic therefore members are only looking to appoint the Planning Manager.


The Chief Executive, the Chief Officer, Place and Governance and HR Manager answered a series of questions relating to the appointment.


The motion was carried unanimously.




That the following appointment be approved:


·  Iain Fairlamb - Strategic Advisor Tier 2 (Planning)
