Development Viability – Expert Adviser, Open to flexible working

The Mayor of London has published the draft London Plan, which provides a framework for more inclusive growth in the City. This forms part of an exciting planning agenda for the delivery of sustainable development and tackling London’s housing crisis by increasing the provision of affordable housing.

The GLA has established a new in-house expert London Viability Team based within the Strategic Planning Team, to advise the Mayor on viability matters in plan and decision making.

You will be a highly experienced expert development viability advisor at the frontline of affordable housing delivery within the planning and development system. You will have excellent planning negotiation skills and a track record of success in either the private or public sectors.

Preferably with expert experience in large scale schemes and housing developments, you will have skill and competency in all aspects of development economics and viability and a thorough understanding of the housing market, affordable housing and planning system, including viability assessments and Section 106 agreements.

You will advise the Mayor of London working alongside other members of the Planning and Viability Teams on referable planning applications and related policy and guidance. You will draw on your skills, knowledge and experience to ensure the robust assessment of viability and support the delivery of affordable housing and sustainable development across London.

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.
