We are looking for a creative and pro-active leader who can confidently challenge and initiate policy change, in addition to creating and developing an overarching strategic plan, for the service.

This is a key position reporting to the Assistant Director for Children’s Safeguarding & Family Support, responsible for driving forward the Council’s Fostering, Adoption and Permanence service.

This is both a tactical and strategic role, bearing the responsibility of managing the delivery of high quality, inclusive services for vulnerable children and young people on a day to day basis, as well as planning and implementing a programme of improvement work to meet the demands of the three year Ofsted Inspection cycle.
