Nashua struggles to find development director
"We have had really minimal progress in trying to find a replacement. I am a little surprised and frustrated," Mayor Donnalee Lozeau said on Tuesday.
Lozeau is considering asking for a recruiter to help with the search process, as only two qualified candidates have shown an interest in the role.
Overall, about 40 applications have been received for the job posting, but the majority of the candidates are not qualified, the mayor said.
Lozeau was originally hoping to fulfill the community development director position by the end of the summer. After an initial round of advertising the role, however, a second round of advertising was initiated and expanded to other professional media outlets and locations, Lozeau said.
There have been no interviews as of yet for the position, although the mayor said there will be two interview teams helping to select the most qualified candidate.The first interview team has thoroughly reviewed all 40 applications.
