East Sussex County Council
East Sussex
Closing date
15 Dec 2023

With strong local communities, unspoilt countryside and vibrant coastal towns, East Sussex offers an exceptional quality of life to many. However, some of our residents face significant challenges, and rely on us and our partners to support them. Our One Council approach, prioritising the delivery of high-quality services in a tight fiscal environment, underpins everything we do.

As a high-performing authority, we are proud of the work that has gone into building strong foundations for East Sussex Children’s Services. We’ve been recognised for innovative practice, and have developed a distinctive relationship-based approach to our work with children and their families. But if we’re to achieve the best possible outcomes, there’s always more to do.

You’ll work with schools, through school-led partnerships, to improve standards and ensure inclusive educational practice. Innovative, collaborative and inspiring, you’ll be a visible and valued member of our ambitious corporate leadership team. Whether your career to date has been in education or social care, you must bring a track record of creative and flexible leadership, outstanding partnership-working ability, and solid delivery of service improvement.
