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 fastest-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. As a Job Hub Advisor, you will support residents to get into Good Work and ultimately lead good lives.

 

Good Work Camden

“We want everyone in Camden to lead good lives, and we know that being in good work is a key part of this. 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 life they want to lead.

We’re therefore investing more in employment support to ensure that residents can access opportunities that enable them to live secure, sustainable, and happy lives.

Through Good Work Camden, we’re designing and delivering Job Hubs that provide accessible and relational employment support, testing innovative approaches to supporting residents, investing in our employment and skills partners and giving businesses the support they need to enhance their own employment practices. 

There are a range of opportunities that we're now recruiting to that will make real meaningful impact - it’s an exciting time to join us in our mission to deliver employment support that responds to our labour market challenges and is open to all.”

 

The Role

Camden Council are making a significant investment to expand the reach of our employment support to those that need it most. This investment is structured around a neighbourhood approach: working in depth with our communities to understand their ambitions and needs around work, and providing the holistic support they need to help them find and move into good work. As part of this, we are establishing several ‘job hubs’ across the borough to make sure that residents can access support close to where they live, and specific to the needs of their community. 

We’ve designed an initial two hubs in Gospel Oak and Regent’s Park. And, after a year of delivering support to Camden residents, we’re ready to grow the service. This is therefore an exciting time to join the Inclusive Economy team in shaping the service as it develops!

About you

You will hold a Level 3 IAG qualification or equivalent related experience with excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be effective in working with employers, local employment and skills partners and residents to achieve effective outcomes that meet the needs of residents.

You will bring a practical understanding of the barriers to employment and training experienced by residents and the labour market conditions that influence this and have a track record of working directly with residents in a demanding environment, providing support and increasing their access to opportunities.

To succeed, you will be dedicated to inclusion; being committed to and demonstrating an understanding of equal opportunities.

 

If these roles are of interest, and you would like to know more about being a Job Hub Adviser, please come along to our Information Session on Zoom on Thursday 12th August 10am – 11am. Please contact Siobhan.mbonu@camden.gov.uk for further details.
