Press self-regulation update (1 May 2014)
The Appointments Committee has interviewed a number of shortlisted candidates but has not yet been able to make an appointment. The Committee has decided to ask Gatenby Sanderson to carry out a further search and to extend the deadline for applicants. Details of the post, which remain unchanged, are available here.
The Appointments Committee has agreed this approach with the Commissioner for Public Appointments given his role in ensuring that the process is fair, open and merit-based.
