Diversity and equality
We value and celebrate the diversity that exists within our community and look to see it reflected in our workforce. We are committed to creating a working environment in which everyone can take full part, and integrate fairness and equity into every aspect of our employment practices.
We aim to develop, promote and deliver recruitment and learning opportunities without discriminating on the basis of a person’s race, disability, age, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation or any aspect of an individual’s background or heritage. All the decisions we make relating to employment practices are objective, free from bias and based solely upon work criteria and individual merit.
We believe our organisation will be a better, more creative and innovative place to work as a result of managing people in a way that gets the best from different perspectives.
The Council prides itself on paying all its staff and contractors the London Living Wage (LLW). Camden has also committed to becoming the country’s first Timewise council as part of its work to help parents balance work with childcare.
Camden wants to be a leader in innovative flexible and part-time working that allows for different patterns of care and for parents to share childcare responsibilities.
