Finance Director at Thurrock Council tenders his resignation

THE chief finance officer at Thurrock Council has resigned from his role.

Thurrock Council has asked the government for exceptional financial support after admitting it has a £469m funding black hole following a series of failed investments.

Sean Clark, the council’s corporate director of resources, was warned about “unprecedented” risks being taken.

A council spokesman said he tendered his resignation, which was accepted.

Mr Clark’s last day was scheduled to be 12 April.

Conservative-run Thurrock said earlier this week he had been paid £58,556.47 in salary this financial year, and £11,594 in pension contributions, since his suspension in September.

The former council chief executive Lyn Carpenter resigned with immediate effect last month.
