Paul Boyce

As an experienced and highly skilled former Director of Children’s services, Paul has a background strongly rooted in leading and managing change in complex public sector organisations. A social worker by profession, Paul held senior leadership roles in local government and the NHS for 15 years before moving to consultancy in 2021.

Between 2014 and 2021, he led two council children’s services departments out of government intervention and on both occasions his leadership skills were highlighted by Ofsted as being a key factor in achieving rapid improvement in the delivery and quality of services.

Paul is a creative and innovating thinker, highly effective at translating ideas into action. He is passionate about improving public sector services and highly skilled at developing and nurturing collaborative partnerships.

Paul was awarded an OBE in the 2021 New Year Honours list for his service to children in Merseyside.
