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

As part of a very busy project Delivery Team, you will be responsible for directly delivering and managing Major Works Projects Managers in all aspects of project management from RIBA 0 – 6, predominantly working on ‘People’ themed projects that improve and/or expand our education estate in order for children and young people to achieve their potential or develop and build adult health care facilities amongst other projects.  There will also be opportunities to undertake ‘Place’ related projects that promote safe, clean green spaces for connected communities where people can lead active and healthy lives.

About the team

You will be part of the wider Major Projects Delivery Team which is an inclusive and very diverse team to work within.  We celebrate our differences and play to our collective strengths.  The environment is fast paced, often demanding and no two days are the same.  If you thrive in active, vibrant spaces, are highly outcome driven, are resilient under pressure plus have a great sense of humour, then the Major Projects Team is the right fit for you.

About you

You will manage and be responsible for the successful delivery of significant, large and complex projects to construct, refurbish, adapt, and maintain Haringey’s council’s estate in line with corporate objectives. You will assume a proactive role, working with the project team to deliver high quality and value for money projects using effective project management techniques, to deliver on council priorities and property-related objectives. You will have a track record of successful project management, managing the delivery of medium to large value (£1,000.000 to £10,000,000 or more), medium to high complex construction related capital projects including planning, managing and monitoring, to deliver desired outcomes within specified time, quality and budget parameters.

Working for Haringey

At Haringey Council we are committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included, and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits of a diverse workforce so welcome applications from all ethnicities and communities so that we continue to make a difference to our residents and community.  Our benefits package includes a leave entitlement of 31 days + bank holidays, potential hybrid working opportunities, health and wellbeing support, a generous local government pension scheme and a range of discount schemes across leisure and culture that provide both financial and money-saving discounts.
