As part of our innovative programme of work to identify and realise opportunities to share and integrate education services across Cambridgeshire County Council & Peterborough City Council, we are now looking to appoint a shared Assistant Director for School & Setting Improvement, to lead the range of school and setting improvement services we deliver across both authorities.

For this brand new role, we’re looking for an ambitious leader with an excellent track record in delivering sustained school improvement. Reporting to the Director for Education, you will work in the interests of both authorities to ensure continuous improvement and high standards in schools and settings in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, effectively supporting the school-led improvement system in the area.

You will have relevant and extensive leadership experience within an education context, and a strong understanding of the role of data in improving educational outcomes. With the ability to effectively manage the interests of a wide range of senior stakeholders, you will be able to provide strong leadership both internally and within the wider education system.
You’ll have high levels of political awareness and sensitivity, to allow you to shape and lead services in the interests of two local authorities and make a success of our ongoing shared services programme, which will deliver better, more sustainable education services that will ultimately improve educational outcomes for the children of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Please note that our expectation is that the post-holder will be appointed at the bottom of the pay-scale for their employing organisation. This post will be employed by Peterborough City Council.
