London Borough of Enfield
£52,503 to £66,600

Enfield Council is a diverse borough with some of the most exciting transformational regeneration projects happening anywhere in the United Kingdom. As a Council, we are changing the lives of young and vulnerable people through youth programmes and projects. We are increasing our in-borough Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision so that we can care for and educate our children and young people locally in a setting that is right for them. Our SMART Living project is utilising technology to enable Adult Social Care users to achieve happiness, safety and independence and reduce isolation. We deliver award-winning environmental programmes which are enhancing our green spaces and waterways across the borough and bringing rain gardens and sustainable drainage to our urban centres – helping London in our journey to net zero and adapt to a changing climate. As part of our work to keep Enfield clean, we are continuing to support residents and businesses to make better use of resources, reduce waste and improve recycling rates. We are committed to delivering on our five priorities for the borough and its residents, which includes clean and green places; strong, healthy and safe communities, thriving children and young people; more and better homes; and an economy that works for everyone. Underpinning our Workforce Strategy 2023-2028 and Council Plan 2023-2026 is the need to have a forward looking Digital Services team, who can deliver a for for purpose, fit for future technology and project landscape to allow us to create, achieve and exceed our Digital Strategy. Our values are to be bold; make a difference; and show you care. Our behaviours are to take responsibility; be open, honest and respectful; listen and learn; and work together to find solutions.
