Heads of Service Complex Investigations
36 Hours per week
These are exciting times for Wirral Children’s Services.
We’re changing the way we work. We are on our way to becoming a modern, agile workforce that keeps the needs of the borough’s children at the forefront of everything we do.
We’ve established a new, well equipped hub office where Social Care, Early Help, Schools Improvement and support staff are all located and working closely together, and we’ve invested in new mobile working equipment for our front line teams to help them get the best outcomes, closer to their communities.
We need a committed and experienced Senior Manager with the vision to build on our improvements and deliver the very best for our children. Working in partnership with other agencies you will lead on the response to complex case investigations. An advocate for best practice and positive change you will establish a strong and effective performance culture that is client focussed.
