Dave Meaden, the chief executive of Northgate, said that the company had made the move in response to “unprecedented challenges” faced by government.

“Every day we are helping our austerity-tested clients protect the vulnerable, reduce fraud, improve their efficiency and identify and prioritise those most in need,” he said.

“At the same time the digital agenda is advancing at a fantastic rate. Our role is to re-evaluate traditional market approaches, improve what can be improved and otherwise build entirely new innovations that will help shape the public sector’s answers for years to come.”

Whitley said that she was confident she could “make a significant contribution at this crucial time”.

Northgate Public Services works with almost every local authority in the UK, as well as working with a number of government departments in Canada and Australia.
