Hackney Education provides a range of services to support the education of children,
young people and adults in our inner London borough. Hackney is one of the UK’s
highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and
work. Within our diverse borough we serve a wide range of children and young
people. We have a particular focus on supporting less advantaged families: Hackney
figures in the 10% most deprived boroughs in England on a number of measures.
Hackney Education’s key priority is to improve the life chances of every child, young
person and learner: making Hackney the most forward looking education system in
the UK, where schools, settings and partners provide an exciting environment which
ensures inclusion and success for everyone. We see our borough as being one of the
best places in the country for young people to grow, learn, develop and achieve
–and one of the best places for colleagues to work and thrive in our education

We are also working towards our vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where
residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where
everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look
for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion,
gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age
and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their
social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination
and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in
flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people and
people from a black and ethnic minority background as these groups are currently
under represented in our workforce.
