Introduction from the Director of Children & Education/Director of Law & Governance 

Thank you for your interest in the roles at  Sandwell Council.

Thank you for your interest in our Assistant Director roles. Sandwell Council is going through significant change and these roles provide a fantastic opportunity for the right candidates to play a pivotal role in shaping the council’s future, and its success.

Sandwell Council has an ambitious Corporate Plan and Vision that puts Sandwell residents at the heart of everything that it does. Sandwell is a thriving, optimistic and resilient community. It’s where we call home and where we’re proud to belong - where we choose to bring up our families, where we feel safe and cared for, enjoying good health, rewarding work, feeling connected and valued in our neighbourhoods and communities, confident in the future, and benefiting fully from a revitalised West Midlands.

We are hugely aspirational for our communities, and are looking for candidates who can drive forward continued improvements and maintain the focus on providing high-quality services for our children, young people, residents and workforce. 

We hope you find the information on this site useful and look forward to hearing from you.

Michael Jarrett, Director of Children & Education         Surjit Tour, Director of Law & Governance (Monitoring Officer)
