Do you have a passion for London and want to help shape its future growth and infrastructure? Do you have strong project management skills as well as an ability to work with a wide range of stakeholders to progress change?  If so, the GLA’s Infrastructure Team wants to hear from you.

In this role you would work within the Mayor’s new Infrastructure Coordination Service, an innovative, fast moving team that brings together utility companies, boroughs, digital providers and others to improve how infrastructure is planned and delivered across London. You will also focus on addressing other cross-cutting challenges such as energy system decarbonisation, infrastructure resilience and supporting London’s economic recovery.

The role involves disrupting status quo approaches to planning London’s infrastructure by providing a new type of planning support and technical advice for boroughs and utilities on growth and infrastructure planning. You will work at a variety of scales – including supporting the preparation of infrastructure strategies for growth areas in partnership with boroughs and utility companies and at a broader scale through progressing the case for sub-regional infrastructure planning interventions that leverage new tools, data and stakeholder networks to achieve efficiencies.

To meet the requirements of the role you will need to be well organised and have demonstrated knowledge and practical understanding of infrastructure issues related to the planning and delivery of utilities and how this links to transport and planning for new development. An ideal candidate would have a degree or work experience in town planning or civil engineering or may have specialist expertise in a relevant sector such as energy or water. You will also have problem solving and communication skills and be comfortable working with a diverse range of people.

The team you will join is high-performing, benefiting from strong working relationships across the GLA Group and the wider sector through the Mayor’s London Infrastructure Group.

Key outputs of the team in recent years have included developing London’s first infrastructure plan, leading on the pioneering London Infrastructure Mapping Application, and establishing the Infrastructure Coordination Service.  

We welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds. The key in your application is to demonstrate how your experience and skills are relevant and/or transferrable to the position.

At the GLA we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days annual leave pro rata, interest free season ticket and bicycle loan, pension and incremental salary scheme.

London's diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to ensure our workforce reflects London's diversity at all levels. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We would welcome applications from candidates who are seeking part time work as this role is open to job share.
