About Haringey

Haringey is a fantastic place to live and work – the world in one borough. A place brimming with creativity, personality, radicalism, and community. It is a place where we stand up for each other. A place that is proudly distinctive. We’ll be celebrating all this and more as the “rebel borough” when we are the 2027 London Borough of Culture.

Our history champions change-makers and everyday rebels; revelling in our differences, battling discrimination, championing equality, and doing things our own way. Haringey’s people are a huge asset, with knowledge, expertise, and passion. Our staff members embody our organisational values: Caring, Creative, Courageous, Collaborative and Community-focused. These values keep us looking forward, ambitious for the future, and continuously striving to do our very best for all of our residents.

About the Role

When problems arise for children, young people and their families, early support heads off the need for specialist intervention later. Whatever we do, our aim is to achieve better outcomes for everyone and develop strong resilience within families. This means taking a joined-up, whole-family focused approach across a range of universal and targeted services. We are supported in this by working with wider council services and alongside our partners, such as schools, health, police, voluntary sector and local communities. Haringey’s Early Help’s vision is that any Child or Young Person, in need of targeted Early Help services, will receive them in a timely and responsive way.
We have expanded our Family Support Teams to create more capacity to ensure lower caseloads so that our staff can spend more time with Children and their families.
This is an exciting time to be joining Haringey’s Early Help Service and we are looking for dynamic, high performing candidates, who keep children at the heart of their work.
