Dr Lee-Anne Farach, Director of People:
Children matter in Medway.
Thank you for your interest in joining Medway Council Children’s Services.
I am proud to be the Director of People at Medway. We have been on a significant journey of improvement since Ofsted’s initial inspection in 2019 and I am delighted that following our final inspection in July 2023, we have been rated 'Good'.
Ofsted recognised that Medway has a strong, determined and cohesive leadership team, a well managed ‘front-door’ and early help service and provide good care and support for children in care and care leavers.
I am also proud that Ofsted highlighted the council’s Children-friendly Medway programme.
Medway continues to put children at the centre of everything we do and I know that our staff will continue to build on the great work that has been done so far to improve the services for our children and families across Medway.
Medway is an exciting place to work and will offer you a range of challenges and experiences. We offer an excellent recruitment package, manageable workloads, a comprehensive learning and development programme and opportunities to progress your career with support from managers who have been supporting Medway’s most vulnerable children and families for many years.
Donna Marriott, Assistant Director, Children’s Services:

Our vision and values put children at the heart of everything we do. We are working with the children and young people of Medway to develop the child-friendly Medway initiative and ensure that all children have the opportunity to grow, learn and develop.
