Andrea's making headlines

MRS Hill's appointment has caused ripples among local authority circles, with concerns about her appointment making front page news in an industry journal.

MRS Hill's appointment has caused ripples among local authority circles, with concerns about her appointment making front page news in an industry journal.

The Management Journal this week ran a story about the presence of a “back-bench threat” to her appointment, as revealed first in The Evening Star last week.

The past exploits of Suffolk's chief-executive-in-waiting have also come under the spotlight of a satirical magazine.

Private Eye features an article in its latest edition making mention of a number of decisions taken at Bedfordshire County Council during her time at the helm there.

This includes more than £500,000 being spent on a failed campaign to fight abolition under a unitary shake-up, a situation Suffolk County Council itself now faces.

The Management Journal also ran a double-page feature on the issue in which a recruitment expert revealed the industry is questioning whether Suffolk would have had a wider choice of candidates had it originally advertised the position with a £220,000 salary.
