Council creates new senior position


A new post of assistant chief executive has been created at West Sussex County Council.

Sarah Sturrock will join the local authority early in January 2022 from the South London Partnershi­p, a collaborat­ion of five London boroughs, where she is currently a director.

She steps into the newly created senior leadership role which has been designed to ‘lead a strengthen­ed strategic function at the heart of the council’.

The assistant chief executive’s remit draws together policy, performanc­e and informatio­n, and communicat­ions to support delivery of the commitment­s in the council plan to residents, partners and businesses.

Ms Sturrock said: “I am excited to be joining the team at West Sussex County Council and I am looking forward to getting to know residents, members, colleagues and partners when I start in the new year.

“Through forging this new corporate strategic function, I want to support the best possible outcomes for our residents and communitie­s, directly through our own engagement and services and through strong partnershi­ps across the county and beyond.”

Becky Shaw, chief executive, said: “Sarah will be a huge asset to West Sussex.”
