Job Description

On 1 April 2019, we launched a transformative, integrated new service for Cornwall’s children. Called Together for Families, it brings together health visitors, school nurses and speech and language therapists with educational and social care colleagues. Families told us they wanted a service where they can get the help they need, when they need it, and in one go.

With the retirement of our current Strategic Director, this senior role offers an exceptional opportunity to play a decisive role in shaping and leading this new service, building on the strong legacy of our already highly-rated service. We think it’s the most exciting development in children’s services in the UK, and for the right person it will be career-defining.

As Strategic Director – Children Schools and Families you will be a key member of our senior leadership team comprising our Chief Executive, Chief Operating Officer and four Strategic Directors.

The role incorporates the statutory function of the Director of Children’s Services for Cornwall Council and offers the chance to be at the vanguard of innovation in support for children and young people.

You’ll bring exceptional professional capability, the highest possible calibre of leadership, and a philosophy of excellence and open-mindedness to a team that’s already making waves.
