When dealing with a situation that can give rise to a serious conflict
of interest (which hiring a trustee always will be) it is always a
good use of money to get professional advice.
According to the UK Charity Commission we are in the
case where Ilario " has had no significant involvement with the trustees’ decision to
create or retain the post, or with any material aspect of the recruitment process"
It isn't written very clearly, but from context I am confident that
those bullet points are intended to be an "and" not an "or".
Nevertheless, voting on the plan which included creating these posts
is "significant involvement".
