Full time

This decisive leadership role offers the opportunity to join Cornwall’s highly rated Children’s Service and shape the next stage of our development. Our innovative, integrated vision for Cornwall’s children offers a new way of working which will transform the impact of schools and education, and will in turn transform outcomes for our children.

You’ll lead on the full span of education accountabilities across Cornwall, promoting productive relationships with our schools, driving up educational attainment and improving opportunities for disadvantaged children and those with special educational needs. While it’s essential that you’re completely at home presenting to school leaders, success in our new integrated model will require you to perform in a range of settings and will demand closer working with social care and NHS colleagues. That’s why we’re looking for someone who truly believes in the benefits that integration brings, and who can make their own mark as they shape the fundamental role played by schools and education in our integrated One Vision.

Strong applicants may have held a school leadership role in the past, but another professional route in education may also offer the perspectives and insight we seek. Flexible, open-minded and with strong relationship and influencing skills, you’ll be able to demonstrate a track record of impactful leadership across education, social care and health. And, with exposure to all of these areas, there couldn’t be a better grounding for career progression than the experience that this role offers.

Closing date: Friday 4 January 2019.
