Panel Answers On Iwi Representation

Subject: Iwi Representation on Interview Panel

Dear Graeme

In relation to your questions concerning selection of the Iwi Representative for the interview panels I provide the following answers:

Local Iwi were not asked to put nominations forward for the interview panels.
Child Youth and Family asked a specific person to be on the interview panels. This is a person who had been on previous interview panels, and had knowledge of the interview process. The person is a current member of the Care and Protection Resource Panel so has knowledge of statutory social work and the issues for the site.

There was no election to determine who would be on the interview panels. The decision about the makeup of an interview panel rests with the Panel Chairperson, although there are guidelines which were followed.

Guidelines for choosing the selection panel:
The Manager of the vacancy is accountable for choosing the selection panel. The selection panel should consist of at least three people with a mix of gender and cultural balance. It is ideal to have the person to whom the appointee will report (the Manager); only in exceptional circumstances should this not be the case. The selection panel needs to include a chairperson, who is responsible for representing the panel and making decisions where a consensus among the members is not reached (the Manager to whom the appointee will report is generally the chairperson of the panel).

Yours faithfully
Pam Walkinshaw
acting Operations Manager Upper South
