Eileen Milner announces departure from CQC to lead Education and Skills Funding Agency
Eileen Milner has announced that she will be leaving the CQC in November to take up the position of Chief Executive of the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), an executive agency of the Department for Education that is accountable for funding education and training for children, young people and adults.
Eileen has been CQC’s Executive Director of Customer & Corporate Services since January 2014.
Eileen Milner said: "While I will be very sad to leave CQC, I am hugely excited about taking up the post as Chief Executive of ESFA. I always said that I would never consider leaving CQC unless I found a role that I was equally passionate about – but I have found my next big and important challenge and I feel very privileged to have been offered this opportunity."
Sir David Behan, Chief Executive of CQC, said: "Eileen has been a valued member of the Executive Team for nearly four years, during which time she has contributed an enormous amount, including overseeing a major restructure of Customer and Corporate Services to deliver a more efficient and effective organisation.
"I will miss her wisdom and counsel but am delighted that she is moving on to such a prestigious role and wish her every success for the future."
The recruitment process for Eileen Milner’s replacement will begin shortly.
