A Local Authority are currently going through major change within their Children Services directorate following their Ofsted inspection and are looking to bring a team in to work with the authority on their improvement plan.

You will have a strong track record of delivering improved outcomes for children, young people and families as well as value for money and financial savings. You will have a detailed knowledge of Children’s Services and demonstrable experience of identifying and delivering creative solutions to drive improvement.

The local authority have identified seven improvement themes in a concerted attempt to address challenges faced by the service

These themes form the basis of the Improvement Plan and have emerged through early analysis of the initial Ofsted report. Activities within these themes explicitly and directly contribute towards remedying shortcomings in service provision.

The planning process will help identify the level of resources and skills required to mobilise a dedicated improvement team, which will deliver against the plan, within an agreed governance structure.

Specifically you will have direct Children’s Social Care experience, and have a proven track record of delivering change and improvement. I am also looking for skills such as commissioning, transformation, project management, strategic service redesign, commercial awareness, stakeholder engagement.
