Vacancy Description

Achieving for Children is an award-winning social enterprise created by Kingston and Richmond Councils in 2014, expanding into the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead in 2017. We are responsible for delivering the entirety of children’s services in all three local authorities.

Achieving for Children has been up and running for three years, and in that time we have established a reputation as one of the leading children’s services providers in the country. We are one of the Department for Education’s eight ‘Partners in Practice’, tasked with leading improvement across the sector.

We support children, young people and their families through our social care, health, education, early help and business services. By recognising and championing strengths we can make a real difference. It’s a genuine team effort.

That’s why we want talented people, like you, to join us and help make a brighter future.

  • Coordinate learning and professional development programmes across our teams and with external customers
  • Work with internal colleagues and external partners providing excellent customer care and support
  • Producing, presenting and reporting on the progress and outcome of L&D and OD activities

This is a fantastic role in a lively and supportive team that will enable you to be creative, and provide opportunities to stretch you in your own professional development
