Within the City Corporation, the Remembrancer's Office is responsible for leading on this engagement.
As our Parliamentary Engagement Officer, you will deal with all aspects of the City Corporation’s interests in Parliament and the Greater London Authority. Often this means the submission of evidence to parliamentary select committees and a significant amount of communication with MPs, Peers and staff of the House of Commons and House of Lords. You will have particular responsibility for driving our programme of strategic engagement, and you can expect to prepare briefing documents, and monitor policy developments and consultation responses and updates. You will also represent the Remembrancer’s Office at external meetings and events, where you will meet with many key opinion formers.
An exceptional communicator, both in person and in writing, you will have a strong track-record in public and parliamentary affairs, coupled with the ability to nurture working relationships at all levels. A good knowledge of how policy and legislation is developed is essential, as is a close understanding of parliamentary procedure.
