At Camden Council our vision is to make Camden a place where everyone has a chance to succeed, and nobody gets left behind. To achieve this we need to think differently about everything that we do, design services focussing on citizens and continuously learn and improve. We are now seeking an experienced Systems Thinking Officer to join our team and help us on our journey.
A successful Systems Thinking Officer must set their sights high. You will have a strong drive to bring about tangible system change for the people of Camden, and a strong track record of influencing and leading others, including those more senior than you.
The post holder will build positive relationships with a range of stakeholders to contribute to decision-making and have a relentless focus on customer experience. You will help reimagine services taking into account the system as a whole, shifting the thinking and behaviour as well as the strategy to challenge current assumptions and drive change.
To be considered for the role, you will have significant experience of having applied systems thinking approaches to innovate and improve services for customers. Knowledge of the Vanguard Method would be an advantage. You will have excellent relationship-building and influencing skills.
You will demonstrate close attention to detail and the ability to use data, evidence and research to inform activity as well as excellent verbal, written and pictorial communication skills.
Camden's main offices are located in modern, award-winning offices at King's Cross. You can expect an exceptional range of benefits including discounted access to the onsite leisure facilities with swimming pool, recognition and reward for high performance with progression and pay increases, flexible and agile working hours and access to a leading pension scheme.
Camden is proud to be the country's first Timewise council and as part of this accreditation we work to help parents balance work with childcare. This fits in with our aim to be leaders in innovative, flexible and part-time working that allows for different patterns of care and for parents to share childcare responsibilities.
