Director of Childrens Social Care

Hello and welcome to Cheshire East Council

Thank you for taking the time to consider applying for this very important role. The vacancy has come about by the retirement of the current post holder after 6 years with the Council. You will be joining a relatively new team who have been together for just over two years and we have great ambition for all our children and families. We are a Peoples Directorate which means we work across children, adults, public health, and communities. This gives us the opportunity to really influence and shape our offer locally.
