You won’t do this alone. You’ll join a team of, driven professionals, dedicated to our improvement journey and providing the best for children. With a supportive senior management team, you’ll be given the guidance, equipment and help to do your very best. This includes an integrated Children’s Services management hub, which is a place of support and community for all our staff, excellent training and development opportunities and the latest technology - all you need to excel and progress in your career.
