Closing date:

Cornwall CouncilTruro, Cornwall

Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competetive
Contract term: Permanent

Together for Families is a new integrated service that is transforming services for children in Cornwall. It brings together health visitors, school nurses and speech and language therapists with educational and social care colleagues. Our one team approach will make sure families get the help they need, when they need it, and in one go.

As Service Director for Education, you'll lead on the full span of education accountabilities across Cornwall, promoting productive relationships with our schools, driving up educational attainment and improving opportunities for disadvantaged children and those with special educational needs. While it's essential that you're completely at home presenting to school leaders, success in our new integrated model will require you to perform in a range of settings and will demand closer working with social care and NHS colleagues. That's why we're looking for someone who truly believes in the benefits that integration brings, and who can make their own mark as they shape the fundamental role played by schools and education in our new integrated service.

Flexible, open-minded and with strong relationship and influencing skills, you'll be able to demonstrate a track record of impactful leadership across education, social care and health. And, with exposure to all of these areas, there couldn't be a better grounding for career progression than the experience that this role offers. If you're a driven and collaborative leader, with a genuine passion for delivering outcomes for children and young people that are beyond the ordinary, then we'd love to hear from you.
