This is an exciting role within Camden’s Market Service and is an integral part of the success of Camden’s growth plans. 

We are looking for an energetic and confident individual that is comfortable working on the streets and speaking to various stakeholders whilst carrying out both development and enforcement duties. You will be required to provide advice, guidance and support to traders, Councillors, resident groups, community and partners, to reduce the impacts of unlicensed street trading, environmental crime and anti-social behaviour. You will deliver effective enforcement action to improve standards of local environmental quality.

You will be flexible and willing to get stuck in as you will be required to work on a shift basis over 7 days per week, including some late evenings and regular weekends. You will be comfortable working as part of a team but also working solely to deal with all serious disputes, disciplinary and enforcement issues courteously in a sensitive, professional and efficient manner. You will have excellent customer service skills and be able to listen effectively, whilst also being able to negotiate and influence others.
