Thank you for your interest in the post of Operations Director Children and Families at Hertfordshire County Council. 

As you will be aware, I have recently been appointed to my role of Director of Children's Services and I believe this is a very exciting time to be joining the Council as we continue our relentless focus on our priorities for children, young people and their families across Hertfordshire.

This role is pivotal to the ongoing success of Children’s Services at Hertfordshire County Council. With a reputation for delivering high quality services and an appetite for fresh ideas, Hertfordshire County Council is challenging expectations and progressing at pace. 

We pride ourselves on working with a range of partners and stakeholders to develop and deliver high quality services that offer value for money but most importantly improve the lives of Hertfordshire's young people.

A key part to our continued success will be the continuing development and delivery of our workforce development strategy to successfully deliver Children’s Services’ priorities through effective training, support and recognition of staff throughout Child & Family Services.  

If you are interested in this opportunity and have the ability and track record to deliver our aspirations, we would be delighted to receive your application. For a confidential and informal discussion about this opportunity please contact our retained consultants at Penna, Carol Coyle on 07500 887849 or email: carol.coyle@penna.com, Helen Alwell on 07809 905467 or email: helen.alwell@penna.com, Maggie Hennessy on 07877 004648 or email: maggie.hennessy@penna.com
