About Haringey

We are investing in creating a better borough for all our residents and bettering the lives of children and young people in Haringey is our first corporate priority. We are located in the north of the capital with a population of approximately 250,000 people and a growing population of 0-19-year-olds. We are a diverse and fast-changing borough and tomorrow’s leaders; artists and innovators are busy growing up here.

Haringey is transforming its services for children and young people, and have already made exciting, innovative changes as we strive for excellence in all we do.

In short, we’re a council with high ambitions; a place to work that is full of energy and focus. Our teams have passion, integrity and commitment, and people join us, do so as they see Haringey is a learning organisation, and the people that work here strive for continuous improvement in their practice, aiming high to ensure we provide outstanding outcomes for our children.

We offer a great place to develop a career that is yours to own.

About You

The ideal candidate will need to be a resilient and authoritative practitioner who places children and young people and their welfare at the heart of their practice. You will manage a number of complex cases, determining suitable thresholds in a timely manner and making recommendations about level of need and next steps in line with the Haringey Threshold guide. This will include liaising effectively and efficiently with both internal and external partners to ensure that children and young people are safe. Therefore, your written and verbal communication would need to be second to none and you would be used to providing high quality, evidence-based assessments.

We will also expect you to support your respective Team Manager and Deputy Team Manager in developing the team, e.g., supporting and mentoring ASYEs and less experienced colleagues, and helping to implement positive change and drive a high-performance culture in the team and service at large. In return, we will give you the time and support you need to make a difference. Alongside our generous learning and development offer, we offer a competitive salary package which includes a recruitment & retention payment and relocation offer (subject to eligibility, terms and conditions). We are actively working to reduce caseloads across the service and provide mobile working technology so that you spend more time with children and young people, doing what really matters.
