Appointment of Assistant Director - Joint Commissioning pdf icon PDF 221 KB

This report makes proposals to permanently recruit to the Assistant Director post in Health Housing and Adult Social Care responsible for commissioning across health and adult social care. This report seeks formal approval to establish an Appointments Sub-Committee for Chief Officer Appointments and to delegate sufficient powers to that Sub-Committee to enable them to conduct the recruitment process, select and appoint a candidate, subject to the requirements of the standing orders on appointment. 


Additional documents:


Members considered a report that proposed to permanently recruit to the Assistant Director post in Health Housing and Adult Social Care responsible for Commissioning across health and adult social care.


The Corporate Director of Health Housing and Adult Social Care was in attendance to present the report and he confirmed the Appointments Sub Committee would appoint to an existing Assistant Director post. Members noted that the job description had been amended to focus on joint commissioning particularly with the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (VoY CCG). 


Members were informed that this post would remain in the Council structure and that the VoY CCG had confirmed they would purchase some capacity to develop joint commissioning.


Members welcomed the principles around joint commissioning.




(i)           That the filling of this post and remuneration package for the Assistant Director post at a job evaluated salary of £68,744 to £76,374 be approved.


(ii)          That an Appointments Sub-Committee consisting of three members, one from each main party (1 Conservative, 1 Liberal Democrat and 1 Labour) to include a member of the Executive, be established.


Reason:    To progress the appointment in relation to this critical role required to deliver the Council’s responsibilities.
