The Role

Assistant Director Early Help & Prevention and SEND

Salary: Up to £115k

As a place of opportunity, growth and potential, Haringey should not be underestimated. Not only do we play a crucial role within a world-class capital, we boast all of the ingredients that make London one of the great cities – vibrant communities, excellent schools, attractive open spaces, diverse neighbourhoods, great transport links and a flourishing economy. It’s no surprise that Haringey is considered one of the most desirable places to live and work. We’re excited to have a number of pilot initiatives underway that will bring together the very best of Early Help and Social Work for children and families in our borough.

You’ll lead and drive further change and improvement at a time when we are redefining our ambitions for children, young people and families in the borough. Surrounded by a strong, dedicated and ambitious leadership team - motivated by an improving performance direction and support from senior politicians - you’ll have enormous scope to make your mark as a transformational leader. This is a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with partners, at pace, to reinvigorate the way we do things; shape services that directly reflect the needs of our children and young people and deliver the results that will make our communities proud.

As an experienced children’s service professional, you will have an impressive track record and be accountable, ambitious and, above all, human. With a child-centred focus you’ll also share our passion for change and be ready to unlock our further potential.
