Cheshire East Interim Chief Executive

Cheshire East

A statement was issued yesterday (Friday, Nov 30th) regarding the post of Interim Chief Executive at Cheshire East Council. 

Kim Ryley's secondment from Shropshire Council to act as the Interim Chief Executive at Cheshire East Council ended today and it has been agreed that he continue in a temporary position until the end of March 2013. 

As was stated earlier in the year, Mr Ryley will retire from his position as Chief Executive at Shropshire Council on November 30. It has been agreed that he will now be employed on a temporary contract by Cheshire East Council as its interim Chief Executive, on a salary equivalent to £140,000 a year, until the end of March 2013. 

This arrangement will mean that Mr Ryley becomes a direct employee of Cheshire East Council which will provide a significant saving compared to the costs of employing the previous Chief Executive. This is because the salary is lower and pension contributions will not be payable by Cheshire East Council. This results in an overall reduction of about a third of the previous salary cost. 

The period until Easter next year will enable the Council to complete its 3-Year Plan and Financial Strategy for the future. During this time, a decision will be made about the chief officer's position at Cheshire East Council. 

The Council will look to advertise a permanent position shortly after Christmas, for the arrangement beyond March next year.
