Nick Kimber

Nick Kimber is a Policy Fellow in the IIPP Policy Studio at the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP).

Nick is Director of Strategy and Design at the London Borough of Camden. He leads on corporate strategy and is responsible for service and policy design, taking a leading role in introducing new digital and design capability into the Council and local government more generally. 

Between September 2022 and December 2021, he was the senior Council officer responsible for the Camden’s Renewal Commission, chaired by Cllr Georgia Gould and Mariana Mazzucato, which developed four community-led renewal missions which are now embedded within the Council’s strategic plan.

Nick’s interests as a policy fellow are in the operationalisation of missions in a place-based context, with a particular focus on measurement and capabilities required for implementation.
