Kettering Council’s new managing director is set to be announced next week.

Earlier this month we revealed that chief executive David Cook could leave the authority after a leadership shake-up, which will see the role of chief executive scrapped.

The role will be replaced by a new managing director, supported by two executive directors.

The new managing director will be officially appointed at a full council meeting on Wednesday (September 28).

Whoever takes up the new post, which is being offered internally, will receive a salary of between £125,000 and £139,000.

That is significantly more than Mr Cook, whose salary is currently £98,000 according to the council’s latest statement of accounts.

Whether Mr Cook has applied for the new role is unknown.
