About Children’s Services

We are investing in creating a better borough for all our residents and bettering the lives of children and young people in Haringey is our first corporate priority. We are located in the north of the capital with a population of approximately 250,000 people and a growing population of 0-19-year olds. We are a diverse and fast-changing borough and tomorrow’s leaders; artists and innovators are busy growing up here.  

Haringey is transforming its services for children and young people, and have already made exciting, innovative changes as we strive for excellence in all we do.  

In short, we’re a council with high ambitions; a place to work that is full of energy and focus. 

Our teams have passion, integrity and commitment, and people join us, do so as they see Haringey is a learning organisation, and the people that work here strive for continuous improvement in their practice, aiming high to ensure we provide outstanding outcomes for our children.  

We offer a great place to develop a career that is yours to own.
