I am delighted that you are interested in becoming part of our Children and Young People’s Service.

Durham County Council is recognised as being one of the best local authorities in the country and in  its first 10 years as a unitary authority we have achieved a great deal.

We have achieved our success through strong leadership, ambition, creative thinking, partnership working and sheer passion for what we do.

This post of Head of Education, Skills and Inclusion is vital for us, and will help shape the way we serve and support children and young people. Moving forward, we need to forge a new partnership approach with our schools and academies, improve access to learning, and ensure that we work closely with health and other partners to enable better outcomes. To help us succeed, we are looking for candidates with strong and relevant experience in an education setting who can bring about change via fresh ideas and determination.

I hope you are interested in this opportunity to join our team and if you are excited by the prospect of working for us, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Yours sincerely

Margaret Whellans
Corporate Director, Children and Young People’s Services
