“Following on from last week’s announcements about our revised Corporate Leadership Team (CLT), I’m pleased to confirm that Colin Diamond CBE has been appointed to the role of Interim Corporate Director, Children and Young People.
“Colin has worked in education leadership for more than 30 years and has been Executive Director of Education for Birmingham City Council since May 2015.
“He undoubtedly brings a wealth of experience to this key role. He’s driven by what’s best for children and young people and the transformative power of education.
“All CLT positions have now been filled – and we have a strong team in place to continue the programme of change needed to create the Council of the Future, and support the delivery of the council’s vision: a city of growth where every child, citizen and place matters.”
