Full time

In Camden, the well-being of our residents underpins everything we do. Our ambition is clear: to create the right conditions for our communities to lead high quality, fulfilling lives in a healthy, safe borough.

As Director of Resident Safety, you’ll continue our work to transform our approach to resident safety across the Council. There will also be a chance to lead the national debate about safety, housing and building standards. It’s a high profile role where you’ll take charge of a newly created team, working with residents, developing new ways approaches and responding to the recommendations of the Hackitt review.

You will work with key leaders to deliver our property services (including facilities management, repairs, development management and housing management). You’ll establish a gold standard assurance process and assume accountability for the safety of the homes we provide to tenants and leaseholders.

Your commitment to ensuring that tenant and leaseholder voices are at the forefront of this innovative approach will see you represent Camden on a national stage. We aspire to become a thought leader on property safety, influencing national policy and championing high quality governance in the delivery of works and services.

Your passion for safety, resident engagement and high quality housing will be underpinned by your understanding of property, building control and compliance and so you may well be a property or health & safety professional. Whatever your background, your tenacious and resilient approach will ensure that Camden’s tenants and leaseholders know that their safety is paramount.
