A Town Hall director is getting a six-figure redundancy pay-out from public coffers, the Advertiser has learned.
Deb Clarke has acted as director of Human Resources for both the Town Hall and NHS Tower Hamlets, but is employed by Tower Hamlets council.
Her work at the Town Hall has now come to an end but she will be on a secondment with NHS Tower Hamlets until her employment ends in February.
The council had initially denied that Ms Clarke is being made redundant but was this afternoon forced to confirm her redundancy, after a council insider revealed to the Advertiser that Ms Clarke is receiving a six-figure redundancy package.
