The Role

“The Community Investment Programme is the London Borough of Camden's ambitious 15-year plan to invest over £1 billion in schools, homes and community facilities in Camden. In total, we’re building 3,050 new homes, including, 1,100 council homes, 300 genuinely affordable homes to rent, investing in 53 schools and children’s centres and providing 9,000m2 of improved community facilities, the equivalent of 35 tennis courts. CIP will also help renovate thousands of existing council homes, as part of the Council’s Better Homes Programme.  

So far we’ve built 862 homes and with a further 120 currently under construction, 2019 looks to be a very exciting year.  We have £30.8m in Mayoral funding to spend on 308 social rent homes and plans for many more.  CIP has enabled the Council to invest £115m to date into high-quality new school facilities for children at a time when there has been almost no national funding available.   CIP has built new school buildings for Netley and Kingsgate primary schools and also  provided new community facilities including the new St Pancras Community Centre and the Greenwood Centre.  

We are funding this investment in affordable homes, schools and community facilities by building homes for private sale and by selling buildings and land that we no longer need. The timely and cost efficient delivery of new homes means more money can be reinvested back into Camden – for the benefit of residents today and in the future.  

We are now looking to add to our expanding team of driven individuals keen to make a difference.”
