Message from Jill McGregor (Corporate Director for Childrens Services) I am delighted that you have taken the time to consider a role within Children’s Services in Trafford. It is a really exciting time to come and join us here as we continue our improvement journey and I do hope you find the information that we have provided helpful in making a decision to make an application. Trafford is a very special place to work and the reason why it is special, is the people. I am genuinely so proud of the way that practitioners and managers across the service come together to support and be helpful to each other with the shared priority to our children and families. It really is second to none and all of the services in Trafford are driven by the passion and vision of improving the lives of children and families through the work we do. Relationships and relational practice is at the heart of all we do which is why we are delighted to be partnering with Strengthening Practice for a minimum of 3 years to work alongside us to help us in creating the conditions for success. Organisationally we are making some exciting changes and this is based on a clear set of principles to make our service delivery better for children and families. This has also created some great opportunities for current practitioners but also to you as new colleagues. My team and I look forward to receiving your application. I wish you best of luck with the recruitment process and that the outcome is that we are welcoming you soon to Trafford.
