Carolyn Fair, Director of Children & Families


Thank you for your interest in the position of Assistant Director of Child Protection and Support Services in Ealing.

Ealing is a highly diverse and vibrant borough in the west of London. Home to nearly 350,000 people, it is the third largest borough by population in London and is an exciting, diverse and challenging place to live and work.

There has never been a better time to join the team at Ealing. We are embarking on an ambitious change programme Future Ealing, which puts the safeguarding of children and young people at its heart and which is committed to improving outcomes for the most vulnerable groups of our community.

A recent Ofsted inspection identified some areas of good practice, at the same time recognising that all local authorities face significant challenges in delivering effective children’s social care services. A robust improvement plan along with significant investment in resources demonstrates the commitment to support improvements. You will play a critical role in regaining our ‘Good’ Ofsted rating and ensure that our services for children and young people are as good as they can be.

So if you like a challenge, come join our team. We want your ambition for children and young people to match ours. If you have the ability and experience to succeed and you share our energy, passion and optimism you will find Ealing an excellent place to work. I am proud and privileged to work for Ealing Council and if you join our team, I am sure you will be too.
