LONDON BOROUGH OF CAMDEN: Strategy Delivery Manager
LONDON BOROUGH OF CAMDEN
At Camden, we value and celebrate difference and encourage diversity in all respects. Our diverse workforce ensures we represent our communities to the best of our ability and enables us to make better decisions. Because of this, we want our recruitment process to be as inclusive and as accessible as possible and we recognise that requires us to be as flexible as we can whilst also preserving the integrity of a fair and transparent process.
Similarly, we appreciate that people’s individual skills and experience may not neatly map to a particular role profile and encourage applications from other professions.
So if you have questions about the role, Camden as a whole, or would like to discuss alternative ways to showcase your interest and expertise, then please attend one of our open events or get in touch with Rich Cassidy at email@example.com.
Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive by making our borough the best place to live, work, study, and visit. We’re not just home to the UK’s fastest-growing economy — we’re focused on creating a borough in which everyone can live a good life and nobody gets left behind.
We have a clear vision – to organise the right people and skills around challenges (like our missions) to deliver the best outcomes for Camden residents and renewal after the pandemic.
Camden has a proud, rebellious spirit that throughout its history has seen communities come together to tackle problems and bring about real social change. We’re willing to be bold and try new things in the process.
But don’t just take our word for it – you can read about some of the different people working in the Council.
About the Strategy Delivery Manager role:
We’re looking for experienced, empathetic, and passionate Strategy Delivery Managers to work with multidisciplinary teams across policy, design, service expertise, data and research to help scope, plan, and deliver great work.
You don’t need to have held a role in Strategy Delivery Management before in order to apply for this role – you might currently be a Programme Manager, a Community Organiser, a Scrum Master, an expert facilitator, or something else entirely.
Whatever your background, you’ll enjoy everything about what delivery managers do in Camden’s strategy function: building teams; getting new projects started; and adapting an agile approach to progress projects, policies, and services from ideas through to the achievement of real change for others
Given this role, even if you don’t come from a government background, as a Strategy Delivery Manager you will need to understand the political and economic environment in which our teams operate. You’ll use your skills to prioritise the work that achieves the greatest purpose and value, to build strong relationships with partners and stakeholders, and to inspire teams to collaborate towards a shared vision.
These new Strategy Delivery Managers will work in one of three teams within Camden’s strategy family – Supporting People, Supporting Communities, or Strategy & Design. Collectively, the work of these teams spans the whole breadth of the Council’s work. Current priorities include preventative health and social care, creating thriving communities for our social housing tenants, and proactively supporting those experiencing financial hardship.
Camden Strategy Delivery Managers champion new and different ways of solving problems, promote inclusive and equitable approaches within delivery, and create a culture of continuous improvement to ensure that teams achieve the outcomes that meet the needs and expectations of both residents and staff in a sustainable way.
