Responsibilities

Tim has responsibility for over 3,000 staff and a net budget of around £120 million, which equates to 23% of the Authority's net budget.

Tim manages many of the most visible frontline services including highways, transport, waste and recycling and the catering, cleaning and landscaping services that the Council provides to many local schools.

Tim also has responsibility for the Council's support services that are essential in ensuring the delivery of the Council's services including finance, HR and customer services, procurement, property and ICT.

Tim is heavily involved in planning the resources available to the Council - its people and money - to help maximise the use of the Authority's finances and assets to deliver value for money services to people living in Nottinghamshire.

Achievements

The Environment and Resources Department, for which Tim has responsibility, continues to provide value for money services against a backdrop of shrinking budgets.

Recent achievements include:

  • national recognition that the overall provision of local bus services and information ranks in the top 10 county councils in 80% of transport indicators
  • introduction of a new contract with Tarmac to deliver more cost effective projects and resurfacing works
  • the delivery of over £60 million of school refurbishments with £40 million still to come for new schools, basic need school extensions and other key projects such as new bus stations and £20 million of property safety projects
  • the Customer Service Centre call volume has increased by over 300% giving access to over 400 services. The team has received the Institute of Customer Service award, with customer satisfaction scores being some of the highest in  the country for telephone enquiries – beating John Lewis, First Direct, Amazon.
  • the ICT infrastructure has been brought up to date, an essential prerequisite for the future  transformation of the Council. 

Background

Tim joined Nottinghamshire County Council in 2009 following four years with Wiltshire County Council as the Council's service director for ICT and procurement. Tim led on the creation of Wiltshire Council as a unitary authority.

Prior to his local government experience, Tim served for 27 years with the Royal Marines reaching the rank of Brigadier and fulfilling significant roles as the Corporate Director for the Defence Communications Service Agency and acting as Deputy Defence Attaché at the British Embassy in Washington. This was after military posts in all three Commando units and service in Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Iraq.

Tim completed a BA Geography degree at London University in 1975, attended and instructed at the Army Staff College and attended the year-long Royal College of Defence Studies in 1998.

Salary and pension

The overall remuneration package includes a basic salary as well as the amount the Council has to contribute to the pension of Local Government Pension Scheme members. Chief Officers who are members of the LGPS contribute 7.5% of their salary to their membership of the scheme. The Employers contribution to the pension of all employees at all levels remains at 18.3%. All Chief Officer salaries are fixed.

Senior managers are expected to be on call at all times including weekends. Nottinghamshire County Council does not at this time provide any benefits that an equivalent senior manager in the private sector might receive in addition to the basic salary - for example performance-related bonuses, private health care or company cars.

Tim has received no pay increase since 2009.
