Northants starts search for new ‘fixed term’ chief

  • Comment

Northamptonshire CC has announced it will start a recruitment process for a chief executive to start on a fixed-term basis.

According to the couty council, the new chief executive will stay in the position “until new unitary authorities are established”. Housing and communities secretary James Brokenshire last month extended the deadline for proposals on reorganisation to August 31.

Andrew Quincey became the county’s interim chief executive, after his predecessor Damon Lawrenson left his post on March 21 after Northamptonshire became the first local authority in almost two decades to issue a section 114 notice.

County council leader Matthew Golby (Con) said: “After discussions with the commissioners we will shortly be launching a recruitment process to fill the chief executive post with a fixed term appointment. We aim to conclude the recruitment process as quickly as possible.”
