RECRUITMENT SERVICES FOR CITY MANAGER POSITION
After termination of the previous City Manager, the City Council authorized the Human Resource Director to start the process of hiring a recruitment firm to assist with locating a replacement for the position. In the past several weeks the Human Resource Director has contacted seven (7) recruitment agencies for proposal of recruitment services. Only one (1) of the contacted firms provided a full proposal or quote to this request. The responding agency, GovHR USA (GHR), has substantial experience in Executive Management Recruitment for government entities similar in size to Minot. The remaining six (6) agencies either declined, or did not respond to the Department’s request.
This recommendation was presented to the Council at the July 6th meeting but was postponed for two weeks for further consideration.
Recommend the City Council to approve the services of GovHR USA (GHR) for the recruitment of the City Manager position; and further, authorize the Mayor to sign the contract on the City’s behalf.
