Hull City Council's new deputy chief executive comes ready-made for her challenging role in helping to drive the local authority towards excellence.

Jan Ormondroyd is no stranger to Hull, having recently played a key role in moving forward its change programme, as part of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister's appointed team.

It was this involvement which attracted and motivated Mrs Ormondroyd to return to Hull in a new role, where she felt she could have even greater impact. She will be responsible for improving the quality of council services and, in her own words, is 'looking forward to hitting the ground running', when she takes up her new position.

The council's chief executive, Kim Ryley said: 'We are extremely pleased to welcome Jan back to Hull. The high calibre of the applicants for this key new position is evidence that the approach we are adopting shows real promise of success for the future. Jan's arrival will bring crucial skills, and experience, and will add to our growing capacity to manage our ambitious improvement agenda effectively.'

Mrs Ormondroyd, 50, joins Hull City Council after previously working as chief executive at Suffolk Coastal DC, a post she held since last May.

Prior to joining Suffolk Coastal, she had been a regional director of local government practice with the ODPM, after previously being the director of scrutiny and performance management at Bradford MDC.

She had worked at a senior level in local government for 17 years, including the roles of head of executive office and corporate strategy and partnership manager, before becoming a director.

Mrs Ormondroyd said: 'Working at Hull as the deputy chief executive promises to be an even more challenging and hopefully rewarding task. Hull has been highlighted as having the potential to make significant improvements, and I hope to play a major part in helping to turn the council around.

'The chance to join Hull City Council was one not to be missed.'
