Head of Service: Safeguarding and Quality Assurance
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 provide strategic support and development to the whole system, ensuring the very best safeguarding practice is in place for children across all services. You’ll also manage the Safeguarding & Quality Assurance Unit, which is accountable for Independent Review & Child Protection, Family Group Conferencing and Quality Assurance.
Candidates will be experienced managers with an impressive understanding of the key deliverables of the role, and the ability to build strong, credible relationships with regulators. You will have a track record of working with colleagues to improve practice through workforce development and will bring powerful insights from your own experience as a practitioner. 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, mobilising all available resources and building good process, systems and practice in the service of a better future for our children.
