Haringey is rich in diversity, heritage, culture and opportunity, and we’re proud of it. As a Council, we’re ambitious for our borough’s future and for all the people who live and work here. We are driven to ensure that all people who have a learning disability can lead fulfilling lives based around their strengths and interests, community connections and the right support, with targeted intervention where necessary.   The recent launch of the Chad Gordon Autism campus and its bespoke approach is a measure of our ambition.  

We are looking for an inspirational leader who can build upon our positive relationships with service users, families and carers as well as lead our talented multi- disciplinary staff team, motivating everyone to continuously improve what we do, based upon co production, strengths based working and well managed services.      

The Head of Haringey Learning Disability Partnership will be a passionate advocate for people with Learning Disabilities, with the drive and determination to get the best from everyone, as well as having the experience and skills to manage large budgets and effective organisational performance.

This is not just a job, this is about changing peoples’ lives and ensuring that as a Council and as a Borough we aspire to provide services to enable every resident to be the best they can be.
