Senior / Principal Adviser level

North Yorkshire County CouncilPrimarily based at North Yorkshire County Council, County Hall, Northallerton with county-wide travel

Hours: 37 hours per week

We are recruiting to our Education & Skills Service and looking for Senior/ Principal advisers to help us drive change and continuous improvement across our school improvement services. 

Our passion for education continues to drive us. Most children and young people in North Yorkshire already receive a high quality education. The majority of our schools and settings are good or outstanding. Many pupils do well at school, obtain good qualifications, and succeed in life after school. However, this is not true of all children or all parts of the county. 

We believe these roles are career-enhancing opportunities for someone with the passion, ability and drive to address key education challenges across schools and settings. Your track record in school improvement and education leadership enables you to identify problems and solutions, this drives your service delivery, your impact and your reputation.

The school improvement function has been recently redesigned transitioning from a historically traditional approach to a more facilitative, collaborative and targeted model underpinned by consistency, quality assurance and robust service delivery. What an exciting time to join us! You will work across a school improvement portfolio, including leading a committed, well-respected team of advisors and professionals with a clear strategic focus on enhancing outcomes for all children and young people. 

This is an excellent opportunity to further develop your career; we are an authority with a strong track record, relentless focus on delivery and performance, with strong leadership, talented teams and well-developed partnerships, but there is much more to do, that is where you come in. 

To be successful in this role you will demonstrate a strong track in school improvement, evidenced though leadership of your own school and through wider school improvement interventions across other schools. Your experience of senior leadership within a school or education context demonstrates your ability to identify and understand challenges and solutions.
