Operational Director of Children & Young People’s Services
Hammersmith & Fulham is an ambitious and dynamic local authority with a strong sense of fairness and a commitment that no one in our diverse borough is left behind. We work corporately and collaboratively to create an environment where all children and young people can flourish and be safe. This is reflected in our 2019 ’Good’ Ofsted rating and through the excellent work of our outstanding social work and family practitioners.
Due to the planned retirement of the current post holder, we are seeking to recruit a new Operational Director. Reporting to our DCS Jacqui McShannon, you will have responsibility for a range of children’s statutory services including Front Door & Assessment, Safeguarding, Family Support and Child Protection, Looked after Children/Care Leavers, Fostering and Permanency and the Youth Offending Service. In addition, you will have responsibility for our Clinical Team and Assist programmes.
As well as a strong grip on operations, you will have the opportunity and appetite to think and act strategically, provide a creative input into redesigning services and help us achieve maximum efficiency across all service areas. We will welcome your innovative ideas around some of our challenges such as safeguarding adolescents, preventing youth crime and avoiding disproportionality in the care system.
This is a unique opportunity for a senior experienced leader and social work professional who shares our values and wants to work in an authority where support for children and young people is first and foremost on our agenda.
