We are delighted you have chosen to consider the role of Director of Children and Adult Services in Darlington.

The role is exciting and challenging in equal measures, it has many specific challenges within the department’s remit but we are not looking just for a leader of these services, we are looking for a strong corporate player who will contribute and lead wider cross Council issues. You should want to be part of a team of senior leaders, both Politicians and Officers, who want to deliver success for Darlington.

We are a close-knit team who work together within the Council, across sectors in the Borough and the wider Tees Valley region to deliver for the residents of our Borough. We have a fabulous dedicated workforce and Councillors who want to make a difference, this role is a great opportunity for the right person to enhance our existing team and to develop as a senior leader for the present and the future.

A truly exciting opportunity; we hope you feel the role is for you and you make an application.

Yours faithfully

Councillor Heather Scott OBE
Leader of the Council

Paul Wildsmith
Managing Director
