Recruitment of employees at any level within an organisation is a complex, time consuming and, at times, difficult task even when undertaken by experienced human resource management professionals.

The task can be more challenging for Local Government Elected Members, who most likely would have had little or no experience in the area of general recruitment let alone the critically important function of recruiting a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for their Local Government.

The recruitment of a CEO will be one of the most important processes that an Elected Member will be involved in their term of office, so the aim of the course will be to provide Elected Members with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively participate in and contribute to the process.

Target Audience

Elected Members who are preparing to undertake a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) recruitment process on behalf of their Local Government.

  • Understand and acknowledge the challenges and complexity of the process of recruiting a Chief Executive Officer;
