Welcome to the Birmingham Children’s Trust microsite supporting the recruitment of the Trust’s second chief executive.

With a new contract in place with the City Council, and following the great Ofsted outcome, the current Chair, Andrew Christie, is retiring and the current Chief Executive, Andy Couldrick, is retiring as Chief Executive to become the next Chair. We think this will bring an important level of stability and continuity to the leadership change.

We hope this site provides you with helpful information, context and background. You will see and read messages from Andrew and Andy and from Deborah Cadman, Chief Executive of the City Council. All are happy to have a conversation about the role if you would like one.

This is an exciting time to come to Birmingham and to join the Children’s Trust. We look forward to hearing from you.

Andrew Christie
Chair of Birmingham Children’s Trust Board
