Assistant Directors - Education

Grade SM3, c.90k

Thank you for your interest in these opportunities, they present the opportunity to shape the strategic direction of education at the newly created unitary Councils.

Whilst both Councils are establishing their own identities, a common ambition at West Northamptonshire Council and North Northamptonshire Council is for everyone to be able to access the right opportunities which will enable them to thrive. We have the resources, drive and member support to make this a reality and to do things which make a difference.

Education and Learning is key to achieving this ambition, ensuring that our children and young people can reach their full potential through good schools, effective SEN, early years and post 16 provision. Reporting to the shared Director of Childrens Services, you will be a key member of the respective directorate's senior leadership team and involved in shaping the culture during the Council's infancy.

Whatever your background, you will come with a deep understanding of schools and school improvement gained at local or national level including the SEND agenda. You will value and nurture close working relationships with our school and business communities and seek to build on the good work achieved to date through genuine collaboration, support and challenge. Above all you will provide an inspirational educational vision for North Northamptonshire Council or West Northamptonshire Council and have the skills to turn this into reality.

If you believe you have the skills and experience to deliver these newly formed roles, then we would like to hear from you. In return we offer a competitive salary, attractive annual leave entitlement and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.

For an informal discussion to be arranged please contact Vanessa Lansbury.
