Senior Policy & Programme Officer - Sustainable Development, Open to flexible working

Help deliver the Mayor’s vision for an exemplary sustainable world city.  It’s your capital. Be part of it.

London is Europe’s only megacity. Currently home to 8.6 million people, our population is growing by over a 100,000 a year and is expected to hit 11.3 million by 2050. Supporting this growth and making sure everyone benefits from it is a world-class challenge. If you want to be a part of the solution and have the skills and ideas to offer, then this is the job for you.

This role will be to help support the Mayor in delivering his sustainable development duty, including through providing support to the Mayor’s London Sustainable Development Commission and the delivery of the GLA’s statutory duty on sustainable development. You will focus on current policy issues, particularly those relating to sustainable development, and to participate in relevant research, analysis and project-based policy development and implementation support. In particular you will lead on developing the communication and engagement elements of the LSDC ‘s work programme as well as the wider SD agenda.

To succeed you will need a thorough knowledge of sustainable development and experience of implementing sustainability in a political environment, including a successful track record of communicating such complex issues.  You will need strong writing skills, and the ability to ensure that the key policy themes are properly integrated. Strong relationship building, presentation and project delivery skills are essential, and you must be able to operate effectively in a sensitive political environment. 

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. 

In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days’ annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan, childcare voucher scheme and a career average pension scheme.

Application closing date:  Wednesday 28 November 2018 at 23:59 GMT

Interviews will take place at: City Hall on Friday 14 December 2018
