Gateshead is a vibrant and dynamic metropolitan borough in the heart of the North East, supported by an ambitious Council which is determined to deliver excellent services to the people who live and work here. Led by a clear vision, our aim is to ensure all local people are able to realise their full potential and enjoy the best quality of life. With a new Chief Executive recently appointed, we are now looking to strengthen our senior team by recruiting a Strategic Director to lead a wide remit of services relating to children and families, education and adult social care.

This role is crucial to the strategic and operational running of these key areas but we are also looking for candidates who can work corporately, supporting the delivery of the Council Plan and our exciting regeneration agenda. You will play a major influencing role whilst working closely with the Council’s leadership team to shape the future direction of our children and adult services. Naturally, we are also keen to ensure a joined up approach with partners across all sectors to deliver efficient and customer focused services that meet the needs of our residents.
