I am working with a client in West London who are seeking an interim Director of Children's Social Care to replace the outgoing Director. This post will be required full-time (4-5 days per week) to hold statutory responsibilities for the following management team (4 direct reports) and services:

AD of Education
AD of Children's Social Care
AD Early Help
AD Health Provision (section 75)

£10s million budget
Low average caseloads per social worker
Low number of LAC cases
Approx 800 CIN
Stable number of CP plans
Social care area is relative strong and stable, although pressures around UASC, SEN transport (not major)
15% vacancy rate - recruitment and retention is really good
Early Help is good, but efficiency savings required in 2019

Key area of focus is SEND and High Needs budgets

The post holder will be required to start in November 2018, with interviews scheduled NEXT WEEK. For more information, please contact James Eddison to discuss in more detail.
