Former Kennet boss bound for Lerwick
3:17pm Thursday 6th September 2012 in Andover
FORMER Kennet District Council chief executive Mark Boden has landed a similar job with the Shetland Islands Council less than a year after being made redundant by the county council in Wiltshire.
His £130,000 a year job as corporate director of operations with Wiltshire Council was made redundant, along with the county’s chief executive Andrew Kerr, last December as Wiltshire councillors decided to lose jobs at the top to help it reduce its budget. The Shetland Islands Council has now confirmed that Mr Boden, formerly a Territorial Army officer during his ten years at Kennet, had been chosen over five other candidates.
