Are you an aspirational and visionary leader with a passionate commitment to achieving excellence for children and young people?

North Yorkshire has a growing reputation for delivering high quality services.

We are looking for an Assistant Director with vision, leadership and the drive to meet challenges head on, as well as someone who can work successfully with key stakeholders and take key service managers with us; to realise our ambition.

You will understand and have the ability to navigate the challenging and ever changing children and young people’s landscape and above all you will have a passionate commitment to young people with a strong moral purpose.

Our successful track record provides a great foundation for a new assistant director to shape exciting, innovative approaches and make their mark in this role and on a national stage. This presents an ideal opportunity for an aspirational head of service or an existing assistant director on their journey towards director of children's services.
