The feedback from the stakeholders would be gathered and fed back to the interview panel before formal interviews take place.

 

An informal meeting between candidates and Andrew North, Chief Executive and Pat Pratley, Deputy Chief Executive would also take place, and feedback would be given to the interview panel prior to the formal interviews.

 

The HR Business Partner, Richard Hall, reminded members of the legislation and HR policy regarding the interview and recruitment process and responded to any questions from Members. He reminded Members that they were under no obligation to make an appointment if they felt there was no suitable candidate. He referred Members to the application form each of the candidate(s) and referred members to the job specification, person specification and the suggested interview questions which had been circulated to all members of the Appointments Sub-Committee.
