Job Description

We’re seeking a new Corporate Director for Children’s Services that can make a real difference by joining a council with a secure financial position and a commitment to investing in our children and young people’s futures.

Thurrock’s journey of improvement has taken a huge step forward this month, receiving strong recognition from Ofsted and a ‘Good’ rating for our service.  We’re incredibly proud of the recognition received by our ‘highly committed, ambitious and determined’ Children’s Services team and, as an ambitious corporate parent, we’re determined to take things further.

We’re looking for a children’s services leader who’ll recognise the opportunities that Thurrock’s place-making agenda offers to our children and young people. And, who will bring the necessary energy, passion and drive, together with innovative ideas and strong practice, to continue our journey to delivering an outstanding offer to children.

For the opportunity to join a team that was nominated for two MJ Achievement Awards for both Council of the Year and Senior Leadership Team of the Year in 2019 visit www.leading-thurrock.co.uk or call David Weir at Tile Hill on 07391 565064 for a confidential discussion.
