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 the Service

The Young Adults Service invites applications from experienced, qualified, and child-focused practitioners at Team Manager level. 

We are a busy and supportive service working with looked after children and young people leaving care aged 16 to 25 years old and playing a vital role in ensuring positive futures. We also manage the referral and assessment for unaccompanied minors arriving in the borough aged 16 and over and ensure a robust response to age assessment requirements. 

About You

The ideal candidate will need to be a resilient, authoritative and an experienced Team Manager who places children and young people and their welfare at the heart of practice. 

You will need to have a proven ability to lead on services for adolescents and care leavers. 

The role will take on a strategic position in developing innovative and effective practice with unaccompanied minors on their arrival and journey through care. The role will require the post holder to ensure we have responded effectively to external changes and makes efficient use of scare resources providing some monitoring oversight of the grant claim and reconciliation of data and performance. 

The post holder will manage the referral and assessment for young people, and ensure development of model of good practice, embed clear procedures and training programmes for all YAS staff and ensure appropriate use of NRPF connect. 

You will need to liaise 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 be second to none and you would be used to providing high quality, evidence-based assessments, analysis and the application of signs of safety.
