Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit this website to find out more about this exciting leadership opportunity at East Lothian Council.

East Lothian is a high-performing council which has an excellent record of delivering high-quality services and continues to improve.

While it is a challenging climate for local government, it is also an exciting time to be joining East Lothian Council. In a period of significant change, development and local population growth, we are ambitious for the future of our special county and the residents we serve.

Delivering the more prosperous, safe and sustainable East Lothian we all want to see includes helping our children achieve their fullest potential in life. We want to ensure they benefit from the best start in life, to enjoy being young, and to grow and develop in a safe, supportive environment.

Our Head of Education and Children’s Services will play a vital leadership role in developing the services and partnerships that will enable children and young people to live safe, healthier, more active and independent lives.  We are keen to hear from individuals who can embrace change, drive transformation and who, above all, share our commitment to continuous improvement and public service. You will be part of a supportive Corporate Management Team who work collaboratively to make a real difference for communities across East Lothian.

The successful candidate will personify and embed our Council Values - Enabling, Leading and Caring.
