About us

Camden is listening to everyone, including you.

We’re giving a platform to people inside and outside our community. 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. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all

The role

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Workforce Programme Lead to develop and deliver a range of projects and interventions that strengthen the independent social care workforce (such as home care and care homes) in north London and maximise the economic contribution of social care to the local economy (currently estimated at £1.15bn pa). This will include initiatives that:

  • support people to enter the care workforce
  • provide development, progression and leadership opportunities
  • promote care quality and integration

The role will also support the 5 Councils to strengthen their approach to promoting race equality in the care workforce.

The role will do this through forging strong relationships with health and social care commissioners and economic development departments to shape the programme of work with the 5 north London boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington) as well as care providers and NHS partners. The role sits within the North London Councils Adult Social Care Programme Team, which deliver priority partnership programmes on behalf of the 5 Councils. Whilst the role is initially for a year, this builds on an established partnership team and if the postholder achieves good outcomes there is the potential for the role to be extended.

This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and will require an Enhanced DBS.
