About us

In Camden, community is everything. That’s why we’ve established a plan to help us deliver a difference to our residents and neighbourhoods. The Camden Way will not only strengthen our organisation, but will make an aspiring difference to what we provide the borough. We want to create a place where everyone feels involved and proud to live in. The way we work demands us to think differently and find new, innovative ways to deliver first class service to our people, making sure everyone knows they have a chance to succeed and where nobody gets left behind. As one of London’s most diverse and vibrant boroughs, we have the opportunity to create a place that works for everyone. And we’re looking for enthusiastic, passionate people to join us in this exciting venture. We are ready for the next step. We are Camden.


Recruiting for attitude and developing for skills

Cutting-edge, challenging, vibrant and diverse - at Camden Council we are committed to excellence in everything we do.

With around 6,000 staff (excluding teachers), our aim is to recruit and develop talented people who will focus on our customers, take responsibility, work together and find better and cheaper ways of doing things.

These are our Ways of Working, which describe our organisational values and principles we expect our staff to uphold.

Ways of working

We don't just want people to fit into a Camden job, we need people who share our values, especially the Ways of Working. In Camden, we recruit for attitude and develop for skills.

Our vision for Camden is as a borough of opportunity; where individuals and communities fulfill their own potential, both in their economic and social life. We want people in Camden to live in safe and harmonious communities, feel connected to where they live, and know that they can influence what happens around them.

To deliver the best services to our residents, we need the best people working for us to make a difference to our communities. We are looking for motivated and talented people who have drive, flexibility and a positive attitude to help transform our services.


Camden Council is committed to diversity. We encourage applications from all sections of our diverse community and welcome applications from candidates from a BME background.

Camden has a strong flexible working culture which is critical to the delivery of high quality and value for money services to our residents. Wherever possible we will offer working arrangements that match the flexible needs of individuals and positively welcome applications from candidates interested in jobs on a part-time, job share or other flexible basis.

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.
