About us

Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind.

The Role

Are you frustrated when things block you from doing the job you want to do? Do you ever wonder what causes those things to happen? Would you like to learn how we can support colleagues and communities to get rid of those frustrating blockers and help make services better?

This an opportunity to shape the future of Camden. You will be helping us gain valuable insight into what matters to citizens and colleagues and then working with those people to create services and solutions that deliver their needs.

You will be part of a team who support each-other with complimentary skills and knowledge. You will bring some of those skills with you, but this a development opportunity so you have the chance to learn in a supportive, safe environment. The team works in a self-managing style where you will be trusted to lead work when you feel comfortable and learn with colleagues when you don’t.

There is no typical day in Organisational Design. Monday might be spent out with a frontline service, listening to colleagues and citizens to discover how things actually happen. Tuesday might be spent mapping out how those customer needs travel through our organisation, identifying the blockers that get in the way and supporting staff to reflect on what we have seen. On Wednesday you’ll need to present those insights to senior leaders, so that on Thursday you might support colleagues to come up with ideas for how we might do things differently. That will involve uniting teams around common purpose and changing the system to remove blockers. That leaves Friday to lead how we test out those new ideas and learn what works and doesn’t work.    

Joining in the new year, you will be working across several workstreams, for example;

  • ‘Reimagining HR’ review
  • Renewal of Our Camden Plan
  • Improving how we support survivors of domestic violence and abuse
  • Coordination of enforcement and engagement activity across Camden
  • Participatory budgeting in communities     

Whilst learning yourself, you will also be supporting colleagues to do the same; improving outcomes for them and the communities we serve. You will work closely with colleagues in OD/L&D.

We will be using a blind application process and welcome expressions of interest from any part of the organisation.
