Operational Director, Children and Families

London Borough of Redbridge

Redbridge has big ambitions. We have strong political leadership and talented officers who are working together with our communities and partners to transform the borough and ensure it can achieve its real potential. We have outstanding Children’s and Adult social care services, an ambitious regeneration programme and excellent value for money services that support residents and businesses right across the borough. Redbridge is a borough that doesn’t want to stand still. The regeneration of Ilford with 6,000 homes, a new cultural quarter and a new Crossrail station means we are creating one of the best places to live and work in the capital.

The Role

Our most recent focused visit by Ofsted has reinforced our confidence in the depth of experience and strength of commitment that exists right across our children’s services workforce. Yet, we are far from complacent. We are passionate about driving further improvement, developing new services and approaches and training, and developing our outstanding staff. Our new Operational Director will bring that same passion and creativity to all that we do.
