Director of Children’s Safeguarding & Social Work
Camden is an amazing place; vibrant, diverse, radical, and ambitious. It is home to some of the most innovative and creative organisations in the country but also has some of the poorest communities and profound inequalities. We are therefore determined that Camden should be “a place where everyone has a chance to succeed, no one is left behind, and everyone has a voice”. Our Children’s Services reflect this mission and the unique character of the place; ambitious, innovative, and compassionate.
As Director of Children’s safeguarding and Social Work you will have a pivotal role in leading high-quality systemic practice and championing our work as corporate parents. You will also be an influential corporate leader.
Through our “Camden Conversations” we place the lived experience of children, young people, and parents at the heart of both service design and our service values; through the Resilient Families programme and strong partnerships we have shifted the centre of gravity of the whole system towards prevention and early intervention, and in the Camden Model of Social Work we have an established and exciting practice framework. For us this role is not just about Social Work, but social justice.
