Job Details

We believe every child has the potential to succeed – with education and learning at the heart of what makes this possible. This is why as part of Cambridgeshire County Council’s vision to make the county Greener, Fairer and more Caring, a key ambition is for Children and Young People to thrive.

With Cambridgeshire’s worldwide reputation for higher and further education, our aspiration is that this standard should begin right from the start, which is why we are looking for an exceptional person to be our next Service Director leading on Education.

This is your chance to lead a committed and talented team, supporting the agenda for tackling inequalities across Cambridgeshire with education being at the heart of how we improve opportunity, life chances and a focus on those children and young people with additional support needs.

If you have a strong track record of improvement and leadership, a nuanced and appreciative grasp of how to get the best out of every part of the system with extensive SEND knowledge and experience, and working within a political environment, we would like to hear from you. We are looking for someone with a personable, compassionate and open leadership style, plus a lively commitment to your own lifelong learning.
