The job itself

East Riding Children’s Services is seeking to appoint an exceptional individual to help shape and develop our targeted offer to children and families. This is a senior management position with responsibility for the Youth Offending Service and our new “making a change service” which is a multidisciplinary team for young people who are presenting a high level of vulnerability and who are at particular risk of harm from sexual and criminal exploitation.

In March 2019 the East Riding of Yorkshire Youth Offending Service became the first to ever score full marks across the board in an inspection by HM Inspectorate of Probation. Inspectors noted: “Staff build fruitful relationships with children, young people, parents and carers, and partner services. It is evident that children and young people are listened to and their goals and aspirations are taken seriously and acted upon.” In October 2020, the YOS won “Team of the Year” at the national LGC Awards.

Take a look at Children's Social Care, exploring the benefits of working for us, including staff testimonials, events and information about our services.
