PUBLISHED: 07:00 12 October 2018
One of Redbridge Council's management team is to leave her £140,000-a-year job after just over two years to "realise her career ambitions" elsewhere.
Caroline Bruce, who joined the council in September 2016, will step down in November, although the Recorder understands she is already absent from Redbridge Town Hall and not expected to return before her departure date.
While in her post, Ms Bruce oversaw a number of frontline services including housing and civic pride.
Caroline Bruce said: “When I joined Redbridge I made a commitment to work for two years to lay the foundation for a successful Place directorate.
“Having overseen the development and launch of new housing, regeneration and civic pride strategies, I’m keen to diversify my experience so as I can realise my career ambitions.
“It is therefore the right time to move on.”
Council leader Cllr Jas Athwal has paid tribute to Ms Bruce’s work for the borough.
He said: “Caroline has built a solid foundation to build on and will leave the directorate with a strong team in place.
“On behalf of the council I would like to thank Caroline for her commitment and efforts, and wish her well for the future.”
