This week we have been conducting the final stage of the director recruitment process. After a busy and productive five days I can provide a positive update on progress.

I am pleased to say a preferred candidate has been identified for each of the four roles: Chief Operating Officer; Director of Resources; Director of Customer Services; Director of Commissioning.

The four appointments are subject to the usual pre-employment checks and due diligence, a process which began as soon as the preferred candidates were identified by the appointments panel earlier today.

Once that process has concluded, we will be in a position to provide further information to elected members, staff and the public on what are significant appointments for Aberdeen City Council and the city as a whole.

I look forward to sharing further news on the director appointments in due course.
