Further Information
Create exciting futures for our children, our Council, our Borough.

It’s an exciting time here in Stockton-on-Tees, with trailblazing, nationally recognised regeneration projects transforming the look and feel of the Borough. We’re building a vibrant and attractive place, with a thriving economy where everyone has the opportunity to succeed.

It’s this same ambition and zeal with which we are approaching our children’s services improvement journey. We have great schools, with 93% being graded as good or outstanding and innovative partnerships such as our unique strategic partnership with Family Action to help support our families. However, there is still much more work to be done, particularly around our social care services.

We’re looking for an inspirational Director of Children’s Services who shares our belief in innovation, inclusion and achievement to get the very best outcomes for all our children and young people. Someone who places children and young people at the centre of everything they do to ensure that everyone in Stockton-on-Tees can live a healthy, safe, and fulfilled life.

You will be joining an ambitious organisation with an excellent culture and a high performing team which has just been nominated for the prestigious APSE Council of the Year Award. You will also be coming to a place on the precipice of significant transformation that will change lives for generations to come.
