Mixed Response To Key Role Recrutiment

The Town Hall

Two new key islands’ positions have brought a mixed response to job adverts.

22 people have applied for the new Tourism Partnership manager position. Chairman of the partnership, Chris Gregory, says it is a reasonably healthy response in terms of number.

But he says they won’t know whether they think they’ve found the right candidate until the interviews are complete, a process that is being undertaken over the course of the next few weeks.

A new Airport Manager post, which would place more emphasis on commercial opportunities within the airport, was advertised by the Council. However none of the three interviewed applicants were chosen.

Council press officer, George Pearson, says the post will be re-advertised, and the Council will continue to seek a suitable applicant to the position.

The airport continues to be run by the Deputy Airport Manager and Senior Air Traffic Controller on a temporary basis.

Both jobs would attract a salary in the mid £40,000 range

    If the airport is being run at the moment by the Deputy Airport Manager and Senior Air Traffic Controller and are obviously considered experience to do such jobs, are they being given the option to fill vacancies. It appears other posts are filled internally within the Council whilst equally qualified persons are not even considered for interviews. I look on with interest to see who is employed as The new Tourism Partnership Manager
