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 fulfil 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 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.
