From a strategic perspective, this role offers an unrivalled opportunity to make a tangible difference right from the centre of our organisation. The successful candidate will have a “seat at the top table” and will work with the leadership team to create an employment culture that attracts and retains the best talent and enables the delivery of outstanding services.  

Creating a purposeful, positive and productive culture is a strategic imperative for Enfield Council—driven by senior leaders, supported by HR. Together we intend to build on our programme of true culture change, involving the development of a robust, innovative and ambitious OD agenda, generating an inclusive environment where everyone feels able to participate and achieve their potential.
