The Committee is RECOMMENDED to:


1)    Request officers to prepare a report for Council. This report will be received by Council on December 13 2022 for a decision to appoint the recommended candidate following the appointments process undertaken by Remuneration Committee.


2)    Instruct the Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development (following the completion of the final stage of the appointments process 28 November 2022) to offer the role to the preferred candidate and negotiate a spot salary of between £190k and £199k. This range reflects the regional and national market for this role as evidenced by external benchmarking (attached at annex 1). The County Council pay policy should be amended to reflect this.


3)    Consider the LGA documents attached at annex 2 with regards to the appraisal process for the Chief Executive Officer and agree the approach set out (reflecting the national guidance from the CEO handbook and the Local Government Association).
