New face at New Deal

The New Year sees a new face at New Deal with the appointment of Ann Allen as Deputy Chief Executive, although some of you may recognise her from her days as Area Co-ordinator for Burngreave where she worked from 1999 to 2001.

Ann said, “Having worked 31 years in the council, I am looking upon this new challenge as an opportunity to reinvigorate my working life.

“My appointment means that John Clark (CEO) will be freed to work more strategically with our partners across the city and I will take on the day to day running of the programme.”

Ann is no stranger to a challenge. When at the council she had responsibility for a range of teams, including 150 bin men, city centre street cleaners, and was Client Manager for refuse collection in addition to being a shop steward during the time competitive tendering was introduced. Most recently she worked with the Regeneration and Renewal team before her move back to Burngreave.

Ann’s professional ambitions are to, “See the Burngreave New Deal programme delivered and completed on a high, with Burngreave being the best performing NDC in the country”.

In an effort to ensure a good work/life balance Ann is working four days a week and enjoys spending time at home; loves cooking, but is hopeless at baking; likes traveling (nowhere too hot) and loves a bargain, her one weakness being handbags! Personally, she sees herself retiring in the next ten year, and opening a florists; both indulging her love of flowers and using her creative flair.
