Who goes where

Rutland County Council (motto: "Multum in Parvo") has ap-pointed Carol Chambers as director of education and youth. Ms Chambers has been acting head of the education service since April last year, when Rutland's first director of

education,Keith Bartley, left to become one of Her Majesty's

Inspectors. The appointment of a permanent successor was delayed until after the recent OFSTED

inspection of Rutland's education department.

Roger Smith, currently assistant director of education for Bradford, has been appointed director of education for Southwark. Dr Smith will succeed Gordon Mott, who has retired after a decade in the post.

Heather Du Quesnay, executive director of education for Lambeth, is to become the council's interim chief executive when Heather Rabbatts leaves on March 1. Mrs Du Quesnay, previously director of education for Hertfordshire, joined Lambeth in 1995 as part of the new management team appointed to rectify the mismanagement of the council in the 1980s and early 1990s. Her work has prompted OFSTED to describe the education directorate as "unrecognisable from those days of despair". Heather Rabbatts announced before Christmas that she was stepping down to consider new opportunities. The search for a new chief executive has begun.

Also stepping down to seek fresh pastures is Rosanne Musgrave, head of Blackheath high school for girls and this year's president of the Girls' Schools' Association. Miss Musgrave is leaving this summer to undertake educational consultancy and advisory work.

Gordon Marshall of Nuffield College, Oxford, is the new chief executive of the Economic and Social Research Council. He was previously official fellow in sociology at Nuffield College and, before that, professor of sociology at the University of Bath. Dr Marshall's main fields of research include social exclusion, equality of opportunity and distributive justice.

John May has joined Business in the Community as the new director of education. Mr May, formerly head of Manor Farm junior school in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, will be developing programmes such as Partners in Leadership, linking heads with senior business managers, and Right to Read, a reading volunteer programme in Yorkshire and Humberside.

Anthony Rowlands has been appointed director of the Centre for Reform, an "independent Liberal Democrat think-tank". Mr Rowlands, a former teacher, was the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for St Albans in the 1997 general election and is leader of the Lib Dem group on St Albans council.
