Bright Start Islington Early Childhood Area Lead
Islington is committed to giving children the best start in life and has a thriving network of children's centres and community venues offering a full range of early childhood services.
We are an inclusive, early intervention borough, with a clear vision to help families develop the resilience they need to improve their children's life chances and address the stressors they face as early as possible. Planning and delivery of children's centre and health visiting services are through an area based model and we need one more Early Childhood Area Lead to join our team.
You will be responsible for leading an area team in the East of the borough, working closely with colleagues leading Bright Start South and Bright Start West. You will build on our current excellent children's centre model to further develop high quality local programmes including targeted family support to reach children and families, especially those with most to gain.
You will develop, foster and sustain a learning culture, that enables children, parents, carers and practitioners to be inspired to engage in learning and develop as successful, enthusiastic and independent learners.
You will have substantial experience of leading early childhood services and excellent and inspirational leadership skills, especially in creatively engaging with partners to plan and co-ordinate integrated services which meet local families' needs
We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates and acknowledge our responsibility to mitigate against systemic racism and inequalities.
