We want everyone in Camden to lead good lives – and we know that being in good work is key to that. We want Camden residents to be in work that makes use of and develops their skills, gives them a sense of purpose and contribution, and pays them a good wage – in order for them to lead the lives they want to lead.

Too many Camden residents struggle to get into good work and the implications of COVID-19 on our labour market is making finding and sustaining good work even more complex. Through Good Work Camden, Camden Council is making a significant investment to expand the quality and reach of the borough’s employment support provision. As part of that, we are investing more in supporting our Employment & Skills Network (ESN), a collaborative group of around 30 committed and vibrant organisations that support residents into work and training.

We have an exciting opportunity for a strategic, adaptable and collaborative person to design and deliver that programme of support for our ESN to ensure that Camden residents have access to accessible and consistently high quality employment support.
