Committee details

Appointing Committee

Purpose of committee

The Appointing Committee is responsible for the appointment of the Council’s Executive Directors. It is chaired by the Chairman of the Council and comprises six elected members appointed in accordance with political proportionality.


Although the agendas of the Appointing Committee are published to give notice of the meeting, the reports and minutes are not made available to the public due to the confidential nature of their business.


Appointing Committee meetings are not open to the public. However, due the current public health emergency and in accordance with regulations, the County Council is, until further notice, holding virtual committee meetings with councillors attending and participating remotely via conference calls.  In order to comply with the regulations which require a public declaration of the members present in a virtual meeting, the first non-confidential part of any Appointing Committee meeting will therefore be webcast to allow press and public access.


Please contact Democratic Services if any further information is required.
