International candidates are again in the running for the
top job at the Dunedin City Council.
Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull yesterday confirmed there had been
''broad interest'' from candidates within New Zealand and
internationally vying to replace outgoing chief executive
Mr Cull could not say how many applications had been received
by last Friday's deadline, but said the new council would
have ''plenty to choose from''.
The recruitment drive was being conducted for the council by
Christchurch-based firm EQI Global, but staff there declined
to comment yesterday.
A shortlist would be presented to the full council to
consider, and it was hoped a new chief executive would be
selected before the end of the year.
