Bromley Council has appointed the former City of London Corporation’s director for community and children’s services to lead the souncil’s social care services, education, housing, and health divisions.

Ade Adetosoye OBE, who has also worked as children’s social care director for Lambeth Council, is to take on the roles of deputy chief executive and executive director of education, care and health in Bromley. In his former role at the City of London Corporation, Mr Adetosoye was responsible for improving children’s services and helped the City and Hackney Safeguarding Board to achieve Osted’s first ‘outstanding’ rating.

“I am absolutely delighted to be offered the opportunity to work in Bromley as deputy chief executive and executive director of education, care and health,” he commented.

“I look forward to working with determined elected members, staff and partners at this challenging and exciting time to secure the very best public services for our residents and communities in Bromley.”

Council leader Stephen Carr said: “We have placed ‘Ambitious for all our Children and Young People’ at the heart of our Building a Better Bromley priorities and Ade’s experience and energy across social care as a whole will provide a significant fillip to our services.

“I am confident that Ade’s ability in transforming services means he has the skills to fulfil this vitally important role for the council; he demonstrates just the right energetic pace we require to lead on our ambition to transform children’s services.”

Arrangements are in place to confirm a formal start date.
