Cllr Green said there was a performance management framework. Prior for the previous Chief Executive wanted to spend more time with his family, a 360 degrees set of proposals had been approved which included performance appraisals for the Chief Executive. This covered expectations and objectives and would be revisited. It was a good idea when going through the appointment to see how we performance manage the Chief Executive and it was good that the document had been approved.
Cllr Holbrook said “but erm, I favour, I favour the permanent appointment”. He then went on to say that they should institute proper proposals for the Chief Executive appraisal system. It had been agreed but not implemented. This piece of work can be done before the new Chief Executive takes up their post. Regarding the framework for removing the Chief Executive they should plan for success. He said just to add he thinks, but he’s not sure that they would have to pay them out if it was a fixed term which can be a very expensive option. He said “Also, erm, the process brings stability and certainty to the management structure.” He added that it was fluid and not on a sustainable basis going forward.
