Opportunity to provide Business Support to SEND Specialist Teams  


Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.


The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.



The Post


You will be joining the well-established SEND Specialist Services area, made up of 5 specialist teams – one of which you will work especially closely with. The service understands the value of having high quality business support and the way in which it underpins the smooth delivery of service provided by teams. We are passionate about the work we do with children and young people with SEND; from Early Years right up to Post-16; ensuring these children are supported to reach their full potential. You will also join us in having a close working relationship with families and settings.

Your work will be crucial in supporting the business needs of the Service Manager and EYIS Team; as well as supporting the needs of the wider team. Your work will contribute to us sustaining our high performance, especially in relation to meeting statutory deadlines, managing referrals, processing payments/generating invoices and providing detailed tracking and analysis systems/reports.


The Person


Are you an experienced professional that has provided business support for teams that support children and young people?

Are you a committed, professional individual who wants to make a difference to the lives of children and families?

If so, and you are up for the challenges and rewards that come from delivering dedicated people centred services, focusing on quality outcomes, we would welcome your application.
