£145k council boss job is advertised
HEREFORDSHIRE Council is using a London-based recruitment specialist to find its new chief executive
Veredus – a trading name of Capita Business Services – has begun advertising the post worth up to £145,000.
The application details confirm that package is worth up to £145,000 a year subject to a biannual review, with a 30-day annual leave entitlement plus public and bank holidays.
The council has not, however, confirmed a cost for the recruitment process itself.
Current chief executive Chris Bull – who leaves at the end of this month – was on £183,724 last year, pushed up to a total remuneration of £222,490 by pension contributions.
Forty-five per cent of his salary was recharged to the primary care trust.
Applications for the post close on October 22 with final interviews set for November 12 and 13.
