About us

In Milton Keynes, we’re supporting the growth of our vibrant city while aiming to deliver excellent services. It’s an exciting place to be, with a rich and diverse population – including 66,000 children and young people, who are at the centre of everything we do. We have redesigned our children’s services to ensure we are fit to tackle the challenges we face and are now looking for a Head of Delivery – Corporate Parenting to join our strong leadership team, focused on fulfilling our potential to become an outstanding children’s services authority.

We are recruiting for a Head of Delivery to lead a team expecting to deliver excellence in all aspects of the social work, care leaving, fostering, adoption, residential and partner services that support the children in our care. Your expertise, passion and creativity will ensure that each individual child and young person experiences services which enable them to develop and achieve their dreams and aspirations. Your work will involve a joined-up approach across the Council, with partners and, most importantly, with young people, their families and carers.

You will develop the strategies to achieve excellence – covering everything from service development to interventions, budget control and placement commissioning to risk management – and motivate those around you to deliver a shared vision of success for all our children and young people.

About you

Degree qualified, you are a social care professional with an impressive background of working with vulnerable children, young people and their families. You will also need to demonstrate a significant background in service-improvement – able to show where you’ve introduced forward-thinking solutions and made a noticeable difference.

Backed by an in-depth knowledge of relevant legislation and the management of regulated services, your enthusiasm will inspire those around you and your commitment will influence others to deliver the best possible outcomes for Milton Keynes’ children and young people.
