South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership officer selected as one of county's 30 under 30

Rebecca Cooke, a transformation officer for the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership, has been selected as one of the Lincolnshire 30 under 30, The Lincolnite's showcase of young up and coming talent and high achievers in the county.

The prestigious annual award recognises inspirational young achievers from all backgrounds and professional fields across the Greater Lincolnshire area, selecting those individuals working to improve their local area and create a lasting legacy in Lincolnshire and beyond.

Rebecca, who works across the Partnership made up of Boston Borough Council, East Lindsey District Council and South Holland District Council, was selected following her recent impressive career progress and development, which has seen her promoted to the role of transformation officer.

She has played a leading role in facilitating and embedding the new Partnership, the largest of its kind in the country, and has helped to develop and deliver new internal policies across the workforce of almost 1,000 people.

Rebecca has also taken a lead role in organising the first Partnership employee awards, co-ordinating the Local Government Association's recent Peer Review of the Partnership and is the Chairman of the Staff Forum, as well as additional work as an interim Police and Crime Panel Officer.

In 2020 she was chosen to be part of the Future Leaders Programme, an opportunity to learn more about local government and become involved in new initiatives, and continues to be involved to help shape its future content and support new participants.

Rob Barlow, joint chief executive for the three councils, said: "I am delighted that Rebecca has received this well-deserved recognition, highlighting her fantastic work across the Partnership in recent years. We are committed to supporting our employees to develop and progress themselves, and it is always great to see that opportunity taken as Rebecca has.

"Rebecca is an inspiration to colleagues across all services, and she always brings a fresh, pro-active perspective to the work she is involved in. I have no doubt that her career trajectory will continue to be steep as she furthers both her own ambitions and her ambition for the Partnership and the communities we serve."
