Diversity and Inclusion

Camden’s strength lies in its diversity and we actively welcome people from all backgrounds. We encourage applications from all sections of our diverse community, irrespective of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), sexual orientation, religion or belief, or because someone is married or in a civil partnership. We believe our organisation will be a better, more creative and innovative place to work if we can harness the benefit of lots of different perspectives.

We value and celebrate the diversity that exists within our community and look to see it reflected in our workforce. Camden is committed to making our recruitment practices barrier-free and as inclusive as possible for everyone. This includes making adjustments or changes for people who have a disability or long-term health condition.

“We want Camden Council to be a great place to work and an organisation that we have pride in. A vital part of this is ensuring we are a truly inclusive organisation that encourages diversity in all respects, including diversity of thinking. By doing this, we will ensure we continue to represent our communities to the best of our ability and deliver our ambitions for Camden.”

Our Camden Plan: 2018 - 2022

This commitment extends to all aspects of employment, starting with ensuring that we recruit on the basis of merit alone. To help us monitor our effectiveness in this aspect we ask all applicants to provide us with information about their diversity. Any information given will be treated in the strictest confidence, and will be used solely for the purposes of monitoring our recruitment and employment outcomes for equality and inclusion. We understand some people may prefer not to provide these details; to ensure we are able to accurately manage this important information please select ‘Prefer not to say’ under any categories where this is the case. This part of the form will be separated from the rest of your Job Application Form upon receipt and will not be considered as part of the short listing or appointment process. If you are successful in being appointed to a role with us and you accept this role, we will automatically transfer this personal information to your employee database file. The information in that part of your file is confidential and will be used only for monitoring purposes.
