We’ve laid the foundations, will you help us deliver?

Haringey is the epitome of what London is about - rich in diversity, heritage, culture and opportunity.  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. Whilst the world has changed for everyone over the past year,  some things remain the same and  Haringey’s greatest strength is still its people. We still work together and look out for each other, becoming stronger and more resilient than ever.

Haringey is on the move and we’re looking for someone who can lead and deliver on our Property and Capital Projects. Reporting into the Corporate Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning, you will work across the organisation to deliver the Council's ambitious plans.  Over the next five years, we’re tackling head-on the crisis of affordability, homelessness and housing standards.  We’re delivering a significant investment programme, including more than 1,000 new Council homes, refurbishing our Civic Centre and wider Council Accommodation Strategy and an ambitious capital programme to help deliver improvements to our schools and community facilities such as librariers.  Our strategic property team also have an important role to play to support planned regeneration at locations such as Tottenham Hale, High Road West, Wood Green and Broadwater Farm.

Haringey is home to a unique mix of businesses across the borough, small and large, from cultural and creative, to famous institutions including Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and Alexandra Palace. Property is one of the Council’s major resources -  a major cost to the Council; a major source of income and a major component in for service delivery and economic growth.  As the Assistant Director Capital Projects and Property you will be an innovative and strategic thinker to maximise potential in using our assets effectively. We’re looking for someone who can drive forward initiatives and projects such as our Council accommodation Strategy, while also being responsible for delivering the Council’s Capital Programme and our Strategic Asset Management function and the effective running of our PMO function for the division.

We are looking for a creative yet pragmatic approach from an experienced multidisciplinary leader, it is imperative you can demonstrate commercial and political nous and can evidence a track record of delivery from within a transferable setting, and the ability to motivate and empower teams to drive high levels of performance. 

We are looking for someone who can rise to the challenges facing local government by working in partnership; recognising that creating meaningful change cannot be done by one person or one team alone if the Council is to  make a positive impact on the quality of lives of the people of Haringey.

This is an exciting time to join Haringey and play a lead role in a phenomenal borough which has huge ambition to deliver new homes, jobs and infrastructure and the passion to deliver the priorities of our residents.
