Policy Officer, Thames Estuary Production Corridor, Open to flexible working
As part of the GLA’s Culture and Creative Industries Unit, you will help shape the Thames Estuary Production Corridor programme, one of the ambitious programmes in the Mayor’s Culture Strategy – Culture for all Londoners, led in partnership with cross-Estuary Partners
The Thames Estuary Production Corridor is a significant new programme to unite East London, the North Kent Coast and South Essex to create a world-class centre for creative and cultural production along the Thames Estuary. It was launched by the Mayor of London in 2017 in partnership with the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP), the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (South East LEP) and the South East Creative Economy Network (SECEN).
As a key role in the Cultural Infrastructure and Public Realm team, you will support the GLA’s leadership and delivery of the Mayor and the South East LEP’s vision for the Thames Estuary Production Corridor, working in partnership with the Thames Estuary Production Corridor Partners Board, and supporting infrastructure and job creation.
The role will involve close working with a range of diverse Estuary stakeholders, including East London boroughs, South East local authorities, the LEAP, the South East LEP and SECEN, the Thames Estuary Growth Board, cultural organisations and creative businesses, central government, higher and further education institutions, developers and many other organisations.
You will coordinate Thames Estuary Production Corridor activity across the GLA Regeneration, Planning and Skills teams.
You will have a good working knowledge of local government structures, the wide-ranging issues affecting local authorities in London and the South East, and the role that culture can plan in addressing these issues. You will also have a good understanding of culture and creative industries policy and how culture is delivered across local places.
Your experience of working with high profile stakeholders and senior management in a complex political environment will be key in building successful relationships and managing a broad range of partners.
