Director's welcome

its all about me logo

Resilient Children, Resilient Families is at the heart of our vision to make Barnet the most family friendly borough in London. We want our children and families to thrive and our staff are critical to meeting that challenge. We want our most vulnerable children to have great social workers and be supported by other professionals who share our vision and who are tenacious at meeting their needs.

Now is a very exciting time to join Barnet Council. Our schools are excellent with some of the best outcomes in the country. We have been rated ‘Good’ in all categories by OFSTED. We aren’t complacent and continue to improve as we want to do the very best for our residents by putting children and young people at the centre of everything we do. Our workforce has remained committed to meeting children’s needs throughout the pandemic in spite of the challenges, that’s one of the reasons why we are so proud of them.

If you join us, you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of children and their families. With our extensive Workforce Development Programme, our clinical services and our supportive existing workforce you will have the opportunity to develop professionally and progress your career.

I do hope you find the information on these pages interesting and helpful. I look forward to welcoming you to Children and Family Services.
