He said: “This is a truly unique opportunity to manage an organisation which is steeped in history at the heart of London and the nation.

“It is an opportunity to work in a place which generates and drives an enormous slice of the UK economy and takes a lead in supporting and promoting London as the centre for world-leading financial services and related business.”

Council leader Jason Kitcat said: “John has made an enormous contribution to Brighton and Hove.

“He has played a major role in developing the council’s culture and services to be more modern and efficient.
