The borough of Camden is extremely diverse. It goes from Covent Garden and Oxford Street in the south to Highgate and Hampstead in the north. It is home to 230,000 people from all walks of life.
The borough includes Kings Cross, St Pancras and Euston stations (as well as the new site for the HS2 station). It is home to some of the world’s largest businesses (including the Google European head office next to King’s Cross) and some of London’s largest parks (including Hampstead Heath). It’s also a cultural centre, including Camden Market and a wide range of arts and entertainment venues.
Camden also has a “can do” spirit and we seek to maximise the council’s resources to benefit our residents. (See detail on “Camden 2025” below.) This means there’s a huge amount of work for finance officers to support. Recent projects include:

FOR THE REBELLIOUS

It’s about bringing your best self to work and challenging the status quo – about not being afraid to experiment and take risks to ensure Camden becomes a place where everybody has a chance to succeed and nobody gets left behind.
Diversity & Inclusion
We want Camden Council to be a great place to work and an organisation that we have pride in.
A vital part of this is ensuring we are a truly inclusive organisation that encourages diversity in all respects, including diversity of thinking.
By doing this, we will ensure we continue to represent our communities to the best of our ability and deliver our ambitions for Camden.
