Anonymised Application – in keeping with Camden’s commitment to inclusion the recruitment to this role is anonymised and supports the objective of reducing the impact of unconscious bias.
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 fast-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. This is an exciting time to join Camden as a Community Presence Team Leader.
This is a great opportunity to lead our Community Presence Team and support the service to deliver both strategic and operational responses to location-based issues across the borough.
You will lead the team to deliver uniformed, visible community-based patrol interventions that reduce risk and reassure communities, including working during unsocial hours where required.
In this role you will be expected to facilitate restorative approaches and promote sustained behaviour change within the community where antisocial impact is being identified through repeat calls and reports.
The post-holder will be expected to develop relationships that support the delivery of outcomes that meet the Community Safety priorities, especially with respect to non-commissioned service options which are based in the community.
This role involves line managing a team of Community Presence Officers.
We are looking for a flexible and innovative person with experience and understanding of using restorative approaches and community engagement. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of relevant legislation including child protection, antisocial behaviour crime and policing act, the Data Protection Act and the Care act.
To be successful in this role you will need to have the ability to collect and utilise information to inform the approach to casework, problem solving and the development of practice which add value to service delivery. You will have experience of applying legislation in a partnership setting, including managing evidence bundles and attending court. Ability to use legislation where resources are limited and prioritising cases where impact and harm to others is greatest.
The role will be based in an “Enabled and Empowered Team” focused service where all officers are expected to work as “one team” to assist the development of a culture where knowledge and experience is shared and the responsibility for making decisions on complex issues is shared, where appropriate. The post holder will take a lead role in this.
