Tony Barnett turned down as Chairman of Natural England
He is not even invited to an interview
I am writing to update you following the longlisting meeting held with Defra to consider the applications for the role of Chair, Natural England. I am sorry for the rather impersonal email, but I am anxious to ensure the outcome is with you at the earliest opportunity. After some very difficult deliberations, the recruiting panel has arrived at a list of applicants to be invited for preliminary interview, and on this occasion, I very much regret to inform you that we were not able to progress you to the next stage, and will not therefore be inviting you for a preliminary interview.
The role generated considerable interest, and there were a number of applicants whose background and experience were a more direct fit in relation to the requirements of the role. The Panel have however asked me to thank you for submitting your application for their consideration, and for your interest in working for Natural England.
Thank you again for your interest and I am sorry it wasn’t a more positive outcome this time.
