Appointment of Statutory Director of Children's Services and Director of Adult Social Services

Council is required to appoint statutory officers, including the Director of Children’s Services and the Director of Adult Social Services.

 

Following the departure of Paul Senior, the Interim Director of People Services, it is necessary to appoint Officers who will have responsibility for the statutory children’s and adults’ social care functions.   It is therefore proposed to appoint, on an interim basis, Lisa Humphreys to the statutory role of Director of Children’s Services and Martin Sloan to the statutory role of Director of Adult Social Services.

 

RECOMMENDATION:  That Lisa Humphreys be appointed to the statutory role of Director of Children’s Services and Martin Sloan to the statutory role of Director of Adult Social Services on an interim basis with immediate effect.

 

Minutes:

The Committee considered the appointment of Lisa Humphreys to the statutory role of Director of Children’s Services and Martin Sloan to the statutory role of Director of Adult Social Services on an interim basis following the departure of the Director of People’s Services who had previously undertaken both these roles.  It was noted that Council was required to appoint to these two statutory roles. 

 

Manjeet Gill advised the Committee that the appointments were being proposed on an interim basis and that Personnel Board would be considering a more permanent arrangement at its meeting on 19 June 2018.

 

RESOLVED:  That Lisa Humphreys be appointed to the statutory role of Director of Children’s Services and Martin Sloan to the statutory role of Director of Adult Social Services on an interim basis with immediate effect.
