SENDING your boss back down to the bottom of the career ladder maybe a dream many of us have.
One of Ipswich Council's corporate directors did just that as she switched jobs for the day to become a dog warden.
When a government assessment hailed the council a success and praised its ability for all members to work together as a team the management decided it was time to go back to basics.
Three corporate directors and the chief executive were all faced with envelopes containing possible job roles to take on for a day.

Tracey Lee, corporate director, said: "We decided it would be a great opportunity for us to get out and sample the work at the front line and to really put forward the idea that the council all works together as part of one big team.
"I picked the envelope to be a dog warden for a day, which I was quite pleased about because I like dogs.

"The day was tremendous fun. I went out to meet dog owners in Ipswich and help other wardens to microchip their dogs.
"It was also interesting to find out different people's views on the microchiping system."
The others who took part in the job swap were chief executive James Hehir who worked as a security guard for the day, corporate director Laurence Collins who had a shift being a sports centre receptionist and Jim Dillon who worked in the CCTV control room.
