The former chief executive of Norfolk County Council, who quit after saying it had become 'crystal clear' he lacked the necessary skills for a revamped County Hall role, is back in public service.
David White, who left his job as the top officer at the county council in 2013, with a pay-off of more than £100,000 has taken up the position of chairman of the Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust. He is entitled to remuneration of £35,000 a year.
Mr White had been chief executive of Norfolk County Council from 2006, with an annual basic salary of £205,322,
But he departed after a management shake-up which saw the post of chief executive replaced by a new role of managing director - a post which called for an increased focus on generating cash through a more commercially-driven approach.
On his new role in Ipswich, he said: 'Ipswich Hospital has a very good reputation. I feel privileged in being appointed to such an important role and am looking forward to getting to know staff, listening to patients and working with all those who have an interest in making the trust even more successful in serving patients. I am joining a top team.'
