Here's that internal announcement in full:-
Senior Management Team Changes
I am writing to tell you that Phil Andrew has left Working Links after four years with the company. Phil came to us from Sodexo and during his time with the business he has overseen a great deal of change including our transformation and fit for growth projects, and the acquisition of the company by Aurelius. We wish Phil all the best for the future.
From today the company will be led by two permanent Managing Directors:
- Brian Bell - Managing Director of Delivery and Growth
- Steve Moon - Managing Director of Development and Planning
Steve will have accountability for all corporate support services as well as strategic partnerships and joint ventures, strategic direction and and governance, new business incubation, and mergers and acquisitions.
Two other new permanent appointments have been made to strengthen the Executive Team:
- Steve Jones - Chief Operating Officer (COO) replacing Brian Bell. The Probation Directors, Country Managers, Jen Lawton and Liz Watkins will now report to Steve.
- Raj Patel - Chief Finance Officer (CFO), Gill Newlove and Julie Simpson will report into Raj, along with his current finance team direct reports.
This is a new chapter for the business with optimism around seven new bid submissions, growing stability in our justice business, opportunities around new ways of working with work and health, improvements with new technology, and a new future strategy. There are however still challenges to face, with new government ministers potentially bringing a new political direction, the wind down of our existing Work Programme and Work Choice contracts, fully embedding the new operating model within the CRCs as well as our continued efforts to drive our new fit for growth ways of working.
If you have any questions about this communication please speak to your line manager or a member of the Executive Team.
