DCC chief executive Paul Orders recommended for Cardiff

An honour you can’t throw away.

Dunedin City Council – Media Release
DCC CEO Recommended for Cardiff Post

This item was published on 24 Sep 2013.

Paul Orders (4)Dunedin City Council Chief Executive Paul Orders has been recommended for the position of Chief Executive of Cardiff Council in Wales.
Cardiff Council’s Appointments Committee has recommended that Mr Orders should be appointed to the role. The appointment is subject to formal approval by the full Cardiff Council on 26 September.
Mr Orders has advised the Mayor of Dunedin Dave Cull and Dunedin City Councillors of the position. He will be advising staff today.

Mr Orders came to the DCC in September 2011 from the role of Cardiff Council Corporate Director and this appointment would see him return to his home city of Cardiff. Mr Orders says he has enjoyed his time at the DCC and the challenges presented. The role at Cardiff is one of the few positions that could attract him and his family away from Dunedin.

“My time working for the Dunedin City Council has been stimulating and enjoyable, personally and professionally.”

At yesterday’s meeting, the Dunedin City Council discussed in-committee the process and timeframe for appointing a new chief executive. It is expected Mr Orders would remain in his current post until late this year. There will be no further comment on this issue until the Cardiff Council has formally approved the appointment.

Orders set to quit council
By Chris Morris
The Dunedin City Council has been dealt a body blow with confirmation chief executive Paul Orders is poised to head back to Wales. Mr Orders will this morning be named in Wales as the recommended candidate to take the chief executive’s position at Cardiff Council. The new role would see Mr Orders returning to the organisation he left in 2011, when he came to Dunedin, and assuming responsibility for workforce of 18,000 and an annual budget of nearly $2 billion. Mr Orders is yet to officially tender his resignation in Dunedin but he was the unanimous choice of Cardiff Council’s appointment committee.

Council chief declines 10% pay increase
By Chris Morris
Dunedin City Council chief executive Paul Orders has turned down a $35,000-a-year pay rise, saying the increase cannot be justified when the organisation is in savings mode. The decision came after the council’s performance appraisal committee – headed by Mayor Dave Cull – concluded Mr Orders’ $350,000-a-year salary was 10% below that of others in his role.

Business
Jon House on his new role with PwC, city regions and his relationship with Russell Goodway
By Sion Barry
In his first in-depth interview since announcing his decision to stand down as chief executive of Cardiff council, Jon House talks to Sion Barry on his reasons for joining PwC, his relationship with Russell Goodway and his views on how city regions should evolve.
Jon House looks particularly relaxed in the pleasant private sector surroundings at the headquarters of business advisory firm PwC at the No 1 Kingsway office block in the centre of Cardiff. Last week he confirmed he will quit his role as chief executive of Cardiff council this summer after three years at the helm. The truth is that he would have announced his decision earlier, if it wasn’t for the recent leadership challenges in the administration’s ruling Labour Party – which he described anyway as being a healthy part of democracy.

The search is now on to find a replacement for Mr House.

Former corporate director for Cardiff council, Paul Order [sic], who two years ago was appointed chief executive of Dunedin City Council in New Zealand, is being suggested a potential candidate.
Mr House said: “I think there will be a number of people interested as it is the best job in Wales.”
