Julia said: “It’s been the privilege of my life to work for Barnsley Council, so it hasn’t been an easy decision, but it feels the right time personally for me to hand over the reins. I’m letting everyone know my news early on so there will be more time for appointing and allowing a smooth transition for whoever follows me.

“I’ll be leaving happy in the knowledge that we have a highly performing and strong directorate, with fantastic staff and excellent leaders.”
