Our Children’s Social Care Service is now building upon the investment of resources made by the council and the work of the interim leadership team to demonstrate momentum in the improvement journey.

To lead this transformation, you will have a proven track record in strategic leadership and management in Children’s Services.

The quality of Education at all stages is improving, as are educational outcomes, and there are positive relationships with our school leaders to build upon.
