Hackney Learning Trust is a department within Hackney Council that is responsible for Hackney's children's centres, 34,268 pupils in 79 schools and early years and adult education. Our vision is to provide excellent education for every child, young person and adult learner.
Our Educational Psychology Service (EPS) is an innovative, high achieving and well respected service. Our highly skilled Educational Psychologists are in constant demand in the local schools, working with teachers, parents/carers, pupils and other professionals to promote positive outcomes.
Hackney Learning Trust is seeking to appoint an experienced, skilled and motivated Principal Educational Psychologist to lead its service. You must be able to lead with confidence, flexibility and professionalism across a broad spectrum of contexts.
Your duties will include managing both statutory and traded services, with the latter set to expand in the coming years. In addition to the requirement for a highly experienced, transformational leadership style, as the successful Principal Educational Psychologist, you will be required to demonstrate budget management, negotiation and commercial skills.
Performance management of the senior EPs, and the management of the performance of all staff in the service, is crucial to enable the service to maintain its high standards of practice. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate a successful track record in this area.
We offer a comprehensive induction and supervision programme including peer supervision, flexible working hours and an essential car user allowance. We also provide good ICT facilities, internet access, and targeted professional development.
