New Chief Executive - West Northamptonshire Council

New Chief Executive - West Northamptonshire Council

Posted: Tue, 11 Aug 2020 10:12 by Gill Wells

Following a competitive national recruitment process, Anna Earnshaw has been proposed as the first Chief Executive of West Northamptonshire Council.

Anna is currently the Director of Adult Services for Northamptonshire County Council, and its Deputy Chief Executive. She has a career in leadership across the public and private sector, with experience of business change and transformation in addition to the social care and health agenda over the last four years.

If the recommendation is agreed by the full authority, then she is expected to formally take the position from 1 October 2020 - although she is already heavily involved in the Future Northants work and programme.

The Government requires the shadow authority to appoint a permanent Chief Executive for the new Council before 31 December 2020, ahead of its launch on 1 April 2021.

Leader of the West Northants Shadow Authority, Councillor Ian McCord, said: "Anna has emerged as the best of the best, and we are delighted to put her forward to lead the officer team in the new Council.

"Our ambition is for a strong, efficient and financially responsible new Council - a fresh start for local government in the area. Anna will be absolutely central to the delivery of this vision."

Members on the new Senior Appointments Committee and Task and Finish Group developed a national recruitment campaign in May, and shaped a robust and open selection process.

There was an extensive interest in the role from internal and external candidates, which concluded with a comprehensive assessment day on Monday, 3 August, and final interviews on Tuesday, 4 August.

Partners from health, police, education and the voluntary sector, council employees and trade union colleagues joined in the assessment day on the 3 August. Members also fed into the assessment day and contributed to a positive and thorough decision-making process. Councillor Ian McCord chaired the final interview panel, with Councillors Richard Auger, Danielle Stone, Matt Golby, Chris Lofts and Jonathon Nunn.

The panel has made a recommendation to the Shadow Council to agree and will be recommending the appointment of Anna Earnshaw as West Northamptonshire Chief Executive to the Shadow Council on Tuesday, 18 August.
