Interim manager helps to save West Sussex Council Â£1m
An interim manager has helped produce a report which will save West Sussex County Council more than £1 million.
The local authority's interim chief executive officer Kieran Stigant has seen the recommendations he made in a report to its governance committee approved, reports the Worthing Herald.
Eight senior management posts are to be scrapped - saving around £1.038 million in salaries each year - with the new-look structure of the council designed to maintain service delivery while responding to the growing financial pressure on the public sector.
County council leader Louise Goldsmith said: "I am confident this new operationally focused structure will not only continue driving down costs, but ensure we have a team in place who will find innovative new ways of delivering services."
Earlier this month, Bill Borrett, cabinet member for corporate affairs and efficiency at Norfolk Country Council, told the Eastern Daily Press that interim managers and workers can fill specialist vacancies quickly, as well as being cheaper to employ than permanent staff members.
