About Us

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

Together we are Camden.

Working for Camden

We are experiencing rapid change and The Camden Way focusses us on how we will respond to these changes and what we need to do to succeed in the future.

We are Camden when we:

  • Deliver for the people of Camden
  • Work as one team
  • Take pride in getting it right
  • Find better ways
  • Take personal responsibility


Agile working

At Camden we view work as an activity, not a place. We focus on performance, not presenteeism. We create trusting relationships, we embrace innovation rather than bureaucracy and we value people. Collaboration is the Camden way, silo working isn’t.

  • Flexible-location working includes hot-desking, remote working, working from community hubs and working from home arrangements.
  • Flexible-time working means having a varied working pattern that is not just Monday to Friday, 9 to 5. Camden operates many different types of flexible working time arrangements, including compressed working week, part time hours, term time only working and job sharing.

Any requests for flexible working are balanced with the needs of the service, however you'll have the opportunity when you apply to say whether you wish to work flexibly and, if so, how.

Make it work for you. Make it your Camden.
