HULL FAILS TO FIND CHIEF DESPITE OFFERING£88,000 A YEAR

Hull UA is struggling to find a chief executive despite offering a salary much higher than any other English or Welsh unitary except East Riding UA.

Hull, the only unitary of the 13 taking power in April not to have appointed an administrative head, readvertised the five-year fixed-term contract in the last issue of LGC for £88,000 a year with car.

None of the applicants to the first advertisement in July were considered for interview. Members would not comment on the calibre of applicants.

The pay levels for East Riding and Hull are far above the Local Government Management Board recommended range - £50,000 to £70,000 for a council of Hull's population of 280,000. The maximum suggested by the LGMB is £86,500, for a population of one million or more.

Among the 12 new chiefs, two are from outside local government: David Clark at York UA was previously chief executive of the Commission for Local Democracy and Mike Robinson at South Gloucestershire, a former Bristol City Council chief executive, has been at the Ministry of Defence since 1994.
