Thank you for visiting our site
Hello, I’m Andrew Bunyan, and became Interim Executive Director of Children’s Services at Norfolk County Council in November 2016.
There have been considerable improvements in Children’s Services in Norfolk over the past couple of years with great professional opportunities and challenges across all sectors.
I never fail to be impressed by the hard work and dedication of the staff in Children’s Services and that of all of our partners. The support and resources that I and my staff have received has been so welcome and crucial to our improvement journey to make things better for children and young people.
In our re inspection in July 2015 we were judged to be inadequate, however Ofsted did recognise the enormous amount of improvement that they had witnessed. Naturally staff were disappointed but we know ourselves well and accept that we still have a way to go. Of those things that were found wanting we have either already moved a long way on them or have plans to do so.
Norfolk County Council is determined to keep moving forward, at pace, with improvement and to back this up additional investment has been made to create new Early Help Service and an expanded, unified Social Work Service. We are all starting to see and feel the benefits of working in a different way and embedding Signs of Safety into everything we do.
On the following pages you can find out more about us and Norfolk and if you like what you see and are up for a change both professionally and personally then why not think about joining us? We have some great opportunities in our new structure for you, at the moment we are recruiting to a variety of management and Social Work posts across all 6 of our localities based in:
