I am comfortable with your detailed spec for the Secretariat. My only
concern is that it is possibly too complete and that the job as specified
is beyond the scope of one person. I think we are agreed that the total job
probably is beyond the scope of a single person but that we should hire a
senior person first and then allow that person to advise on what other
support is required and how that can be delivered. Funding is clearly a
critical issue here! Given that this remains an issue, I suggest we
indicate in covering documentation that we recognise that the secretariat
task may be beyond the scope of a single person and that any bids should
prioritise taskings so that additional staff can be progressive hired as
required and as funding becomes available.
My assessment of the priorities would be Objectives 1, 2 and 4. I see
Objective 4 as (at least initially) a stretch (or longer term) objective.
The specific job responsibilities for Ob. 4 will need to be prioitised with
time frames and resource costs attached.
It would be good if we can get sign off on this tonight and agree on the
selection criteria we intend to use.
