This is an opportunity to join an experienced and supportive team at a dynamic and well-regarded Tottenham-based charity. Markfield is an inclusive community hub where people can play, socialise and get information & support, and we promote equality, participation and choice for disabled people and their families.
We are seeking a committed and well-organised person to manage the team delivering the Special Educational Needs Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS), which provides impartial information to children and young people with SEND and their parents and carers in Haringey.

This role is dynamic and varied, holding responsibility for planning the strategic development of the service, the management of the staff and budget, as well as undertaking some direct service delivery.
You will need an understanding of the needs of, and experience of working with, disabled people and their families, as well as knowledge of SEND legislation, Local Authority procedures and the ability to lead and manage a team.
