Hertfordshire is an ambitious and forward looking council serving over one million people – 262,000 of which are children and young people over the age of 18.

Due to the retirement of the current post holder in April 2019, we are looking to recruit early to ensure a smooth handover and provide additional capacity in this key service area which is undergoing significant transformation and investment. Reporting to the Director Children’s Services, you will lead a range of services for young people – including SEND, Early Help, Youth Justice, Families First and Virtual School – as well as overseeing the quality of commissioned services such as Youth Connexions and Children’s Centres.

We are genuinely open as to your background which could be< education, social care, health or third sector – but we will want to see strong leadership and change management skills as well as operational experience in one or more of the service areas in the portfolio.
