The role
The directly-elected Mayor of Lewisham, Damien Egan, has set out a bold, ambitious and progressive policy agenda for the borough.

Lewisham Council serves one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the UK, and like many inner city councils we are recovering from COVID-19 while facing huge financial pressures from central government.

We are looking for someone to work directly with our Mayor and Cabinet Members to support them in carrying out their roles and duties.

We actively promote diversity and specifically welcome applications from people from diverse backgrounds.

What we’re looking for
We’re looking for someone who wants to support our Mayor and Cabinet Members to deliver positive change for the people of Lewisham.

You will be passionate about making a difference and will want to work in an environment where new ideas are welcomed and creativity is encouraged. You’ll be able to spot comms opportunities in the Council’s work, understand the Council’s priorities and how to apply them to discussions, and able to use research skills to produce concise and impactful briefings.

Our team work collaboratively and we’re looking for someone who enjoys working with others, someone who is good at relationship building, and has the confidence to operate with key stakeholders at the highest levels of the Council.

You’ll need to be highly organised and adaptable. You’ll have the ability to balance a heavy workload with fixed deadlines and timescales, and ideally you will have experience working in a politically-led environment and within a diverse community like Lewisham.

The Council reserves the right to close adverts early if there is a large response.
