London borough brings back chief executive post

  • Comment

Harrow LBC’s cabinet has reinstated the post of chief executive barely eight months after the council scrapped the role.

The outer London borough’s Labour cabinet voted to restore the position, which was deleted by the short-lived predecessor Conservative administration last January.

LGC understands the council will pay up to £160,000 for the post, which would be less than former chief executive Michael Lockwood had been paid.

A Harrow spokesman said the council was considering recruiting the new chief executive without using a recruitment agency, in a cost-saving move.

Harrow is due to begin shortlisting candidates next month. The chief’s remit will include developing shared service arrangements with other boroughs.

Mr Lockwood, who has since become an executive director at the LGA, received a pay-off of £168,000 when his post was axed.
