Upheaval at Ealing as Leadbetter quits

    Mike Leadbetter has quit his job as interim director of Ealing
    social services – the fourth senior manager to leave the council in
    the past six months.

    Leadbetter, a former president of the Association of Directors of
    Social Services, resigned just six months after joining the council
    at the end of last year following the retirement of Norman Tutt,
    then director of housing and social services, at the end of his
    five-year contract.

    Julie Hollyman, former chief executive of the West London NHS
    Mental Health Trust, has replaced Leadbetter in the interim.

    Last month, Caroline Whalley, executive director of education also
    left the council. This followed the departure at the end of last
    year of Minna Natthoo, director of diversity and talent.
