Welcome from Jim Leivers, Interim Director of Children’s Services

Dear colleague

Thank you for your interest in Sandwell.

I am very pleased that you are considering joining us. We can offer you a chance to make a lasting personal contribution to the lives of the children and families in Sandwell. By joining us you will be at the centre of our improvement journey

In Sandwell, we understand the challenges that we face and we are determined to improve the quality of services and outcomes for children and young people. We accept that this is not about quick fixes and that we need dedicated and determined senior managers who can work with our staff to put in place sustainable improvement. We are looking for people with high standards, a real understanding and drive, who are not phased by competing demands and the fast pace of change. If you think you fit the bill I would be delighted to hear from you.

With best wishes,

Jim Leivers.
