Reporting into a Service Director, this is a permanent and full-time Head of Service role within Rutland County Council.

In this role you will be responsible for children's social care services, leading teams across Referral & Assessment, Children in Need and Child Protection, Fostering & Adoption, and Care Leaving.
You will be tasked with delivering the social care elements of the children's services development plan, which will entail embedding "Signs of Safety", improving the consistency of high quality social work practice, and increasing the participation of children, young people and families.
