Chief Executive

This is an exciting time for Slough Children’s Services Trust. As an independent company limited by guarantee we have a clear remit to improve social care practice and outcomes for our most  vulnerable children and families in the borough. We are encouraged by the progress we have made since our launch in October 2015 but recognise there is still a long way to go.

We are now looking for a new Chief Executive to take us on the next stage of our journey and help us achieve our ambitions. Working closely with the Board, you will lead the organisation and hold responsibility for all operational management of the trust, as well as supporting a culture and environment where social work can flourish. Relationships with our key partners including the Council, DfE, local partners and community groups are strong and provide a sound platform for further improvement.

You will be a confident and resilient leader who can demonstrate a successful track record of senior management and change management experience in a similar environment. You will have empathy and understanding of the complex landscape in which the trust operates, a passion for children’s social care, the communication skills to inspire staff and the determination to take us to the next level.

Please email to request an information pack or contact our advising consultants at Penna: Maggie Hennessy on 07877 004648 or Anita Denton on 07725 554802.

Closing date: Monday 23rd April 2018.
