Ref: GSe69750

Haringey is rich in diversity, heritage, culture and opportunity, maybe more so than any other London borough. Haringey is our home and we’re proud of it. As a Council, we’re ambitious for our borough’s future and for the people who live and work here.

As a key component  of the Borough’s future, Haringey Council must ensure that colleagues across the organisation reflect this ambition and are able to embrace the challenges ahead. Critical to achieving this is the HR team which has been undergoing a significant period of change, including the recent recruitment of a new Chief People Officer and restructure of the management team. We are now looking to recruit to three new posts in the team.

As the Head of Talent and Resourcing you will be key to our drive to ensure we have the best people in the organisation delivering quality services to our residents. You will lead the ‘insourcing’ of the Council’s permanent recruitment team; continue the development of the council’s apprenticeship scheme; create coherent talent pipelines and lead the L&D function.

We are looking for someone who will embrace change, who will make an impact and deliver. As an organisation we promote a sense of autonomy where leaders and managers can make active decisions. Crucial will be your ability to develop the team around you and support colleagues across the organisation.
