Town Posts Senior Affairs Director Position
The lesser known vacancy is one of three that Londonderry currently faces.
Londonderry has started its push to fill a Senior Affairs Director vacancy in the town after the current holder of the job officially stepped down last Friday.
Kimberly Bean resigned from the position after being hired in 2011.
Interim Town Manager and Police Chief William Hart said that the position has been posted internally. It was also posted on the website today, and provides a pay range of $20.70 per hour to $22.32 per hour depending on experience.
The position offers 28 to 34 hours per week.
"We're looking for somebody who has got real strong interpersonal skills," Hart said. "Somebody who can exercise some good organizational abilities in dealing with senior members of our community."
Bean's resignation comes shortly after a vacancy was left by former Planning and Economic Development Director Andre Garron, who left for the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.
Hart said that the vacancies being left are not the sign of a trend in the town of Londonderry, but rather personal decisions that happen in the interface between and organization and those who work in it.
"Certainly in the case of Andre Garron, I know I spek for the people of this community when I say that I personally was deeply grateful for the professional service he gave to this community," Hart said. "An opportunity came along that he felt meshed well with his profressional desires. As I said at the time, it was certainly a bittersweet moment."
A non-public meeting between Hart and the Town Council took place on Monday, and involved a review of the search to fill both Garron's position as well as the Town Manager spot that Hart is occupying.
Hart didn't give any details from the meeting, but said that specifics will be delivered to the public next Monday.
