THE move towards shared services at two district councils in the Advertiser and Review region took a step forward this week.

Over the last two week candidates for three new directorships to be shared between South Northants Council and Cherwell District Council have undergone the selection process.

Those appointed to the new shared senior management team were Ian Davies, Calvin Bell and Martin Henry

Sue Smith, joint chief executive said “I am delighted to announce these appointments following an intensive selection process. The new directors will take up their posts on October 1.”

Mrs Smith said the next stage in the formation of the joint management team with will be the appointment of eight heads of service and that those appointments will be made towards the end of September.
