Nottingham is a vibrant, diverse and ambitious city, but it also faces the challenges that come with deprivation. Our children and young people are at the heart of Nottingham’s future, and we are looking for a talented Director to help shape our aspirations to be an inclusive and child friendly city, to lead our children’s services to achieve the best outcomes, and to ensure children and families are at the very heart of everything we do.

At Nottingham City Council we have a self-aware and front-footed approach, allowing us to embrace opportunities for innovation and service improvement. We are creating a new era for the City and our people, responding to the unique challenges we face as an organisation along with those facing the whole sector. There is a buzz of excitement about the future and our new Director of Children’s Integrated Services will provide leadership across children’s social care, early help and with colleagues in our extensive partnerships.

We are looking for a Director who is excited about changing the lives of children and young people, who has the commitment to lead improvement in our services and the ambition to look ahead and determine where we go next. A strong collaborator, you will inspire and influence committed partners to continue to find innovative ways to change lives and raise aspirations.
