Applying for Jobs
In Camden, the online application form plays a crucial part in the selection process. It is therefore vital that you complete this form as fully and accurately as possible. Sorry - we don't accept speculative CV’s or applications sent directly via email.
If you are having difficulties applying online, please contact us - we are happy to help. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0207 974 6655.
Have a look at the relevant documents related to the role you are interested in. Read them carefully, as they will tell you what skills/behaviours, ability, knowledge and experience we are looking for.
Click on the link ‘Apply for this job’.
You will be asked to log onto your account. If you haven’t already registered on our job site, you’ll need to do so in order to further proceed with your application. This is a quick process – you just need to insert your name, email address and preferred password.
You now need to complete the application form, which is divided into sections. For some roles, we may ask you to attach a CV.
Application questions section
In this section, you need to state how you meet the requirements for the job. Think carefully about why you are a suitable applicant for the post. Relate your skills, behaviours, knowledge and experience to the duties of the post as fully as possible and also look at the Camden Way which describes our values and ways of working. Take into consideration paid or unpaid work you have done in the past and any work you are doing now.
There is a limit of 16000 characters. This is equivalent to approximately 2000 words. You won't be able to exceed this limit, therefore please ensure your statement is concise. You may find it useful to type your statement onto a word document first and then copy and paste it into this section.
You can save your application and sign out anytime you like and come back at any point before the closing date. However, please ensure you always tick the ‘save’ button located at the end of each section. When all sections are completed, you can submit your application. You’ll get an email confirming that we’ve received it.
If you successfully meet the job requirements, you will then be notified via email to attend the next selection stage (eg interview).
It is our intention short-listing should be finalised within four weeks of the closing date. All applicants will be notified if successful or not.
