Local Government Shared Services – board appointment

At the full council meeting on the 19th October 2010 I was confirmed as a board member of the shared services project with Northamptonshire.

This is an exciting piece of work bringing together the back office functions of both the county councils. Sharing these services will produce significant savings and with a fair wind actually improve services.

Working with both county councils will be a challenge but one that has the potential to reap rewards. Getting effective working between two different organisations will require a mix of diplomacy, strategic thinking and above all a healthy dose of common sense. I hope I have enough of all three.
