Chief Officer appointment confirmed

I’m pleased to announce the latest step in the recruitment process for the leadership team.

John Wilson has been appointed to the post of Chief Officer Capital and will commence this key role on 2 July 2018.

John will be well known to many within Aberdeen City Council through his current post as Managing Agent for the AWPR, where he has been integral to the delivery of one of the country’s largest infrastructure projects in partnership with Transport Scotland and Aberdeenshire Council.

Recognising that the AWPR is nearing completion and is expected to be open to use in autumn 2018, John will retain an overseeing role as Managing Agent for the coming months.

His experience and expertise will be of great benefit to the Council as we deliver our own ambitious capital programme and I look forward to working with John as part of the leadership team.

There are now just three Chief Officer roles to be filled. The selection process for the Chief Officer People and Organisation and the Chief Officer for the Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership takes place this week.

Finally, the recruitment process for the Chief Officer Strategic Place Planning will commence this week.

I will provide further updates as they become available.
