Job role
Head of Service
Contract Type
Full time

We know what’s needed to improve the services we deliver to Tameside’s children, and we’ve already come a long way. Now we’re investing in strengthening provision for children in need and child protection, looked-after children and care leavers, and in our QA and safeguarding support across our services, so our integrated team can make sustained progress.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an experienced manager to join us in this pivotal leadership role. You’ll oversee the delivery of outstanding services to cared for children and care leavers, as well as contributing to the wider safeguarding of children and young people across the CYP Strategic Partnership. This will include leading the corporate parenting agenda, fostering and residential services and taking a strategic approach to service transformation.

Candidates will be experienced managers, with a track record of delivering the highest quality of corporate parenting services. You will share our commitment to achieving permanency for children and will have an extensive understanding of successful transition to adulthood. Additionally, we’re also looking for evidence that you have a deep understanding of risk and have exercised consistently sound judgement through your career to date.

We want to hear from people who have experience of driving service improvement in similar environments focused on supporting and meeting the needs of vulnerable children, with experience of managing complex risks, building partnerships with other agencies, and mobilising all available resources in the service of a better future for our children.
