Head of Service-LAC/CP-Ongoing Contract

A Local Authority in the South East of England is looking for a Head of Service / Assistant Director who can join them on an interim basis. This is an initial 6 months contract, but it can get extended offering you stability.

This is a newly created position, because the Local Authority is working on improving their Ofsted rating. They have an Ofsted coming in so they are recruiting at the moment for experienced senior people who specialise in improvement management. As the Head of Service, you will looked after the Looked After Children and Court Work Teams.

There is a Head of Service there already, but he just got promoted from a Service Manager level. You will be mentoring the new HoS whilst improving the service.

Please apply if you are a Head of Service / Assistant Director with experience in improving services for the children services.
