About the Role
The Chief Executive’s Office sits at the heart of the council, working directly with the Chief Executive and Board Directors in a busy and exciting environment. The team coordinates, prepares and advises, helping navigate decision making and dealing with the unexpected.
This role provides strategic support for the Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning (HRP), working closely with them, Assistant Directors and their Executive Assistant to get things done. This includes coordinating work across the directorate, preparing reports and presentations, organising directorate-wide events and communications, forward planning, and supporting teams to navigate decision making.
Working alongside the HRP Programme Manager, this role also leads on improvement work, managing projects, corporate financial strategy asks, supporting work with politicians, and using sound judgement to deal with complex issues.
Providing that vital link between Directors and others inside and outside of the organisation, the Business Manager helps build and maintain important relationships with politicians, partners and key stakeholders.
Working in Housing, Regeneration and Planning, the Business Manager will be at the core of some of the council’s most exciting and impactful work, including building new council homes, place-shaping and regeneration programmes and Haringey’s leading zero carbon climate change plans.
You will have experience of working with senior leaders in a demanding environment, and ideally an understanding of how councils operate.
Most importantly, you will be organised and efficient, have a keen eye for detail, able to work well under pressure, and able to work with colleagues to sort problems quickly and effectively. Enthusiastic and motivated, you will be a great communicator and able to build strong relationships at all levels.
