Mirza Ahmad said:

“It has been a great honour and a privilege for me, over the past 11 years, to serve the largest local authority in the UK, Birmingham City Council. I am delighted, therefore, that I was able to play my part in raising excellence within the City Council and I wish the Council, its elected members and officers, every success for the future. As for my future, I will reflect on my future career direction and I remain firmly committed to promoting Birmingham, the legal profession and serving the public good.”

Following a major corporate restructuring and budget saving exercise during 2011/12 , Mirza Ahmad’s post and a number of other chief officer posts were affected.

This year, a number of senior officers have left Birmingham City Council (BCC) and Mirza Ahmad , due to this re-structure , has also agreed with BCC to leave the council  on 31st July 2011 so that he can pursue the next phase of his professional career.
