About Haringey:

Haringey Council is one of 32 in London. Haringey is an extremely diverse borough and the Council has set clear ambitious objectives through its borough plan to make Haringey a better place to live, encourage investment and create opportunities that all can share. Haringey’s vision for the future is one of sustainable growth, in housing and jobs and on helping our residents and businesses take advantage of that growth. We have got huge ambitions for Haringey. As the shape of local government continues to change, we are determined to rise to the challenge and find new ways to ensure that our residents enjoy the best opportunities in life. Working at Haringey gives you the opportunity to play a part in meeting those ambitions on behalf of everyone who calls the borough their home.

About the role:

We are recruiting for key positions within our Employee Relations department which sits within the Culture, Strategy and Engagement team.  Our team of Employee Relations Specialists are tasked with the management and resolution of issues relating to discipline, sickness, grievance, complex cases and the development of management capability in these areas.  We aim to develop a best practice, quality and timely service to staff and managers.  As well as working closely with the organisation’s managers dealing with cases of volume and complexity, you will help us to develop those managers through delivering our training workshops. 

About the team:

You will have experience of managing multiple cases within a public sector environment, preferably within local government. You will also have a desire to resolve issues at their earliest point, although we will also expect the drive and tenacity to see complex cases through to conclusion. Experience of working with legal services to prepare for employment tribunal cases is essential, as is the ability to work confidently with senior managers and, potentially, elected members. Finally, you will share our desire to create a strong and innovative team that is demonstrative of the Haringey values; Human, Ambitious, Accountable, Professional. We are developing a new way of working at Haringey which means you can expect a blend of working in the office and at home. We have a dynamic and diverse internal workforce, just like the population we serve. Our staff network groups promote all aspects of ‘difference’ and we want all of our employees to feel able to bring their whole self to work. We also want our employees to feel connected to Haringey and we work hard to promote development activities within the area.
