Assistant Director, Children’s Services

Ref: 3017/CEN

Based at Central Office, Edge Lane, Liverpool       37 hours per week

Competitive salary and annual leave

Nugent is looking to find a motivated and innovative Assistant Director of Children’s Services to lead our notable and very complex services for Children and Young People.

As a qualified Social Worker and Responsible Individual for the Children Services, you will need to have extensive experience in Health and Social Care and substantial experience in leadership of Ofsted regulated and unionised environments (previous experience as the RI of residential children’s homes would be desirable). Your management and care qualifications, financial acumen and deep understanding of safeguarding issues will be welcomed. You will need to be very competent with all manners of software packages, particularly as Nugent continues to move forward to implementing electronic care records.

We are looking for a very flexible and tenacious leader, with a great sense of humour and emotional intelligence to develop the services and who can support the delivery of a Christian ethos within the organisation. We have high expectations for this role but in return will provide a competitive salary and terms and conditions, and a supportive work life balance.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Liz Jackson, Director of Operations on 0151 261 2000.

You can also call our 24 hour recruitment line on 0151 261 2040 or email HR@nugentcare.org for further details and an application pack.


An assessment centre and interviews will be held at Nugent in Liverpool on the 10th of April (please note this date as short notice may be given). A second interview date may be called on the 12th April if needed. Shortlisted candidates will need to be available for both dates.
