Further to the Council’s adoption of a new Corporate Management Team (CMT) structure consisting of six permanent directors, the Managing Director post had remained on the interim arrangements agreed by the Council in October 2013.

(2)  that the current post holder, Sue Sturgeon, continues to be appointed and remains as the designated Head of Paid Service and Section 151 Officer.
