Focus on….Camden

AnnieM, August 17, 2010

The London Borough of Camden stretches from Hampstead Heath to the North, Kentish Town to the East, West Hampstead to the West and part of Covent Garden to the South. In the first in the series of our all-new ‘Focus-on’ section of the weekly blog, we take a look at the Camden area and find out what it’s like to work in the region.

We asked  Shabnum Din, who works in the Camden Parking Services team what she thinks of working in Camden. She said:  “Camden is a real people-orientated culture. People are at the heart of everything we do. We focus entirely on our customers, whether they are members of the public, colleagues or business owners. There is a good sociable atmosphere and lots of things to do. “She added: “It’s certainly a lot more innovative and forward thinking than any other borough. I’d recommend that anyone thinking of working in Camden should visit our website or visit and apply for some of our vacancies. We are always looking at ways to improve how we work so we value any feedback people give us.”

For those Youtube lovers out there, you may enjoy watching a selection of videos made by the London Borough of Camden which discuss what it’s like to work for the council as well as focusing in on specific areas within the borough such as Hampstead, Kilburn and Bloomsbury. So grab a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy. And afterwards, why not check out some of our jobs in the Camden area?
