Thank you for visiting our website to find out more about the exciting opportunities we have here at Enfield Council. Enfield is a proud to be a diverse London borough which is culturally rich and has a range of opportunities for those who work and live within its boundaries. It is a large outer London Borough, with many inner London challenges, but big ambitions and even greater aspirations.
In Enfield, our school and early years improvement service works alongside schools to ensure that we maintain high standards and produce good outcomes for all our children and young people. We have an extensive professional development offer for staff at all levels and provide support and challenge to school leaders, as well as advice and guidance for everyone who works within schools.
It is our aspiration that Enfield will be in the top 20% of local authorities by the year 2020; that all Enfield schools will be rated by Ofsted as good or outstanding (or will be judged to be on track to be good at their next inspection) and outcomes for children in schools across Enfield will be above national averages at all levels.
I believe you will find working in Enfield an immensely rewarding experience. As a member of the People department leadership team, you will have opportunities to make a real contribution to quality of life in the borough and the life chances of its children and young people as well as the support of a richly experienced team of colleagues.
The executive management team is collaborative in nature and the Council has high ambitions for growth. Our culture is positive, open and supportive – with a real focus on outcomes. We have built an excellent reputation, over many years, for high quality support and challenge, professional development and school improvement and are proud of our relationships with schools and other agencies within the council.
If you feel that you could make a difference to the lives of children and young people in Enfield and help us achieve our aspirations, then we look forward to receiving your application.
Tony Theodoulou, Executive Director - People
