New director of Czech Government Agency for Social Inclusion will be announced next week
Seven candidates have applied for the position of director of the Czech Government Agency for Social Inclusion. A three-member hiring committee met on 18 May to review their applications.
The first member of the committee is a deputy of the head of the Office of the Government, because the new director will be both an employee and a civil servant. The second member of the committee was appointed by Czech Human Rights Minister Dienstbier, and the third member of the committee is an external expert specializing in social exclusion.
At its 18 May meeting the committee reviewed the applications and decided to invite all seven candidates into the second round of the process. Interviews will be conducted this week and next week with them.
The final interviews will take place on Monday, 25 May. After evaluating the applicants' know-how, the committee will select the top three candidates and submit their names to Minister Dienstbier and Deputy Minister Martina Štěpánková.
The name of the new director of the Department for Social Inclusion (the Agency) should be announced on Wednesday, 27 May. The new director will start during June 2015.
The names of those appointed to the hiring committee will be publicized once the process is over - there has been pressure from the media for their identities to be made public. The names of the applicants can only be publicized with their consent.
