NOTTINGHAM APPOINTS BRACKNELL FOREST CHIEF AFTER FIVE MONTHS

Nottingham City Council has appointed a chief executive after a five-month vacancy in the post.

Bracknell Forest BC chief executive Gordon Mitchell has been given the job after the previous chief executive, John Jackson, left after just 13 months in post.

Mr Jackson left as part of a 'mutual agreement', following the apparent realisation that a different style of leadership was required at Nottingham.

Mr Mitchell worked with ministers and senior civil servants at the Cabinet Office for four months this year to develop organisational change and improvements in central government.

He described the Nottingham City Council job as 'one of the biggest jobs in local government'. He added: 'It was a difficult decision to make because Bracknell Forest is a great place to work. Working with an excellent team of officers and councillors, we have been able to take the council to new levels of operation.'
