Camden is focused on creating the conditions for people to lead high quality and fulfilling lives. We are committed to delivering frontline services in an efficient and professional manner reaffirming our responsibility to quality of life for our communities.

The Camden Plan sets out or plan to make homes in the borough safe, well-managed, well-maintained and playing an active role in shaping a private rented sector that works.

About you

Have experience of working collaboratively with internal and external partners to identify innovative and creative approaches to service directives. You are able to demonstrate your involvement in managing, organising and coordinating cross-service projects, and identify how this has led to successful outcomes.
