Job Details

Could you help tackle London’s housing crisis and increase the impact of our Homes for Londoners teams?

Tackling London’s housing crisis is one of the Mayor’s top priorities, and the Homes for Londoners team are working flat out. We have secured £4.82bn from the Government for investment into affordable housing – resulting in record numbers of starts of genuinely affordable homes. We have also launched the Rogue Landlord and Letting Agent Checker, involved Londoners in taking action to help rough sleepers through three successive public-facing winter campaigns, established a £736m fund for more proactive engagement in the land market, and kickstarted a new generation of council homebuilding through the £1bn Building Council Homes for Londoners programme.

We are looking for a driven and committed person, with excellent written and oral communication skills to provide direct senior support to the Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development. You will work alongside our Homes for Londoners teams to help increase and amplify the impact of the work of our partners, managing key industry and political stakeholders and our engagement with them.

We are looking for an excellent problem solver, who is politically aware and passionate about making a positive difference to Londoners’ lives. Working directly for and on behalf of the Deputy Mayor, in this role, you will work with a wide variety of internal and external stakeholders and will need first class relationship building skills and experience of managing communications. You will coordinate Mayoral and Deputy Mayoral visits and briefings across all areas of the GLA’s work on housing and will have programme or project management experience and an ability to understand and communicate complex policy and practical issues. Experience working closely with and advising senior politicians or comparable figures is essential. Experience of housing issues and policy is desirable.

This role is politically restricted’ under the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.

In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days’ annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan and a career average pension scheme.
