The Roles

Creating capacity in the system for future excellence

Sandwell Children’s Trust

Sandwell Children’s Trust delivers children’s social care and targeted services to support children, young people and families in Sandwell. From its launch in 2018, the organisation has made significant progress resulting in a better and safer environment for our children and young people. 

Recently the Trust has been focusing on a number of areas, one of which being our ethos and guiding principles. This has involved the whole workforce with some powerful messages being shared about what is driving us in our roles. We want this to shape the future and how we work with families; so, your interest in joining us has come at an important time as we continue to move together at pace to create a new story.

We have agreed six strategic priorities which are driving our work: Practice; People; Partnerships; Prevention; Meeting Need and Measuring Progress; and Striving for Excellence.

As part of this next phase, we have created a number of new roles which will form a crucial part of the success of these priorities. They will also assist in our vision of creating a culture of creativity, inclusion and continual learning here in Sandwell, with our children at the heart of everything we do:

  • Director of Practice, Quality and Partnerships (£95,092 - £110,890)
  • Head of Service - Social Work Teams - Operations Directorate (£64,699 - £73,946)
  • Head of Service - Transformation (£64,699 - £73,946)
  • Strategic Lead - Early Help (£64,699 - £73,946)
  • Strategic Lead - Commissioning (£64,699 - £73,946)

With the work we have done so far and with the ambitions we have for the future, it’s a really exciting time to join Sandwell Children’s Trust and to become part of our ‘Sandwell Family’!
