About us

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. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all.

The role

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join Camden’s private sector housing team. The Council has a large number of houses in multiple occupation and has operated a successful borough-wide additional HMO licensing scheme since 2015.

We are looking for a proactive and enthusiastic Environment Health Practitioner, or a graduate EHO working towards their Chartered status, to join our HMO Licensing team. This team is responsible for delivering HMO licensing under the national mandatory and Camden’s borough-wide additional schemes. You will be required to carry out HMO inspections, prepare licences and schedules of work to bring properties up to our current HMO standards, provide expert advice to landlords, agents and tenants and to defend licensing decisions at court. We will provide you with plenty of opportunities for professional development and to maintain your CPD requirements.

If you are motivated and professional in your approach with good organisational skills, then Camden could be the place for you. You’ll be joining a friendly team committed to providing safe and healthy housing. At Camden we embrace teamwork and personal development and you will have the opportunity to develop your skills across a range of fascinating challenges.
