In this post, Helen Reynolds from Monmouthshire County Council describes how she helped the Children’s Services team to recruit a new head by giving a flavour of the job and team through video and using social media to spread the word:

Hopefully those who go for job [Head of Children’s Services] have a good idea about what to expect after watching potential colleagues and the previous Head of Children’s Services on YouTube.

What did we do? Simon Burch, our Chief Officer for Social Care and Health explained:

“This is a key post at an exciting time and in order to give candidates a flavour of what we are doing in Monmouthshire we have have done some short YouTube videos to give people a better feel for us here in Monmouthshire. None of us made it to RADA though so please concentrate on the message, not the messenger!
