WE NEED INSPIRING LEADERS
Thank you for your interest in this exciting joint role of Executive Director for Children in the Council & Chief Executive of a new Local Authority owned company at Slough.
Aligned to our ambition of becoming a world class organisation and changing the way we work at Slough Borough Council, we are also in the process of transitioning our Slough Children’s Services Trust to becoming a local authority owned company. Never has it been a more important to not only ensure we maintain our statutory responsibilities to protect children and young people in Slough, but also ensure Slough children grow up to be happy, healthy and successful. And all against a backdrop of the ongoing financial pressures felt across all local authorities and of course the COVID-19 pandemic.
Earlier this year we agreed with the DfE that there would be significant value and benefit in making strategic change to our current operations in order to improve our business processes where possible, bring our operations even closer together in line with our ‘One Slough’ vision across all public services, and ultimately lead to the successful delivery of our Children’s Services within this brand-new company.
Very much in the early stages of creating this company and model (we don’t have a name for it yet) we are looking for a fresh-faced and aspirational individual to champion a collaborative culture and drive improvements in Children’s Services in all its forms across the whole of Children’s Services in Slough, including the services delivered by the Council and those delivered by the Slough Children’s Services Trust (the Trust).
Involved from the very start and working collaboratively with stakeholders across the board, we believe this newly created role is also a once in a generation opportunity to reimagine Slough Borough Council and the care of the children of Slough whilst playing an active and pivotal role in modernising the way our council operates as a whole.
If this sounds like the role for you then we’d love to hear from you. Please read on to find out more.
