Do you enjoy being the best?
A great opportunity has come up to work in one of the fastest paced public sector communications teams in the country. Haringey is a busy, diverse borough that is constantly changing – it’s already a fantastic place to live with some of the best schools and parks and some of London’s most iconic neighbourhoods.

It's an exciting time to be joining our new-look energetic and imaginative Communications Team, which has a real focus on ideas, positive stories and communicating the council’s work.

About you
