Working at Camden - Camden Careers
Working at Camden
We are cutting-edge, challenging, vibrant and diverse - at Camden we are committed to excellence in everything we do. With around 4,000 staff, our aim is to recruit and develop talented people who will focus on our customers, take responsibility, work together and find better ways of doing things.
Our staff are at the heart of being able to deliver the Camden Plan : we will need to transform the way we do things and work in new and different ways to achieve this. We don't just want people to fit into a Camden job - we need people who share our values. We recruit for attitude and develop for skills.
To deliver the best services to our residents, we need the best people working for us to make a difference to our communities.
Camden is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable adults, children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Camden 2025 sets out our vision for the borough in 2025, a place where everyone contributes to our shared goal of achieving a safe, fair, creative and active community.
We have worked with our communities to create a new vision for Camden 2025. Together we want to make Camden a better borough – a place where everyone has the chance to succeed, where nobody gets left behind, and where everybody has a voice.
We strongly believe that through addressing disadvantage, we can contribute to ensuring citizens live happily and healthily, with better outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
Over the last few years we have been working hard to ‘shift the balance’ of our services to ensure we intervene early and prevent needs escalating – to enable us to focus our resources on those citizens who really need them, while also trying to prevent complex issues from happening in the first place.
Many residents are held back by problems and challenges that have been around for too long. We need to continue to innovate to respond to these long-standing problems, focusing on tackling the root causes.
Camden is known for its quirky fashion sense, stylish markets and amazing eateries and has come a long way over the last few years, fast becoming the most diverse and exciting place to visit and work.
Based in the heart of the capital, we have so much to offer our dedicated staff with excellent commute links in and out of London.
The area's streets are full of choices for places to eat and drink with colleagues and friends after a hard day at work.
One thing's for sure: you could never call Camden boring or lacking in choice for entertainment. You and your team can build bonds by heading towards the markets, sitting in the sunshine in Granary Square, or watching your favourite band at the famous Roundhouse in Chalk farm
With all of this to look forward to and plenty more, why not make Camden work for you?
