Full time

Leeds is a growing city – attracting investment, creating a thriving economy, and building a reputation as a place to watch. We’re fast becoming a destination of choice for businesses and for families, and it’s essential that our capacity to deliver high quality education provision adapts to meet growing demand. We understand the strategic connection between economic growth and the education and skills agenda; and we’re seeking a creative response to rising numbers in our schools. So, as well as being the lead Education professional in our organisation, we’ll also look to our new Deputy Director of Learning Services to think more widely and build the cross-sector partnerships that will see Leeds flourish.

This role is about building on what we do well, and quickly identifying what can be done better - working with others to design and deliver the right response. It will suit an individual with a compelling track record in education at a system leadership level; someone who has the subject expertise and professional credibility to build positive relationships with schools, universities and colleges, politicians, and an extensive range of stakeholders. It’s a very visible role in a nationally leading Council where expectations are high, so you’ll need to be confident in managing the scrutiny and attention that comes with a portfolio that is central to ambitions for our city.
