Business & Communications Manager
Local London Partnership
An exciting role in a new and dynamic partnership, co-ordinating programmes and leading on communications to bring about positive changes in this fastest growing area of London
'Local London' is a dynamic and ambitious partnership comprising the London Boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Bexley, Enfield, Greenwich, Havering, Newham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest. With 2.1m residents, a quarter of London's population, Local London is larger than most UK cities and is projected to grow by 26% in the years to 2041.
The boroughs have come together to promote sustainable and inclusive growth in the Local London area and to enhance the prosperity, health and well-being of all in our communities. To achieve this we develop and deliver collaborative strategies and programmes to secure the potential benefits of growth and tackle the challenges it can bring. Working with stakeholder organisation in our area and London partners we seek investment and policy support for our aims and objectives and the devolution of powers from central government.
As part of its devolution deal with government, Local London has started delivering a major GBP30m plus Work and Health Programme to help residents with health challenges gain skills and employment and is working with the GLA on a skills and employment strategy and the devolution of the Adult Education Budget. We are producing a 'Business Plan for Growth' which will set out further ambitious policies and programmes for Local London.
To support this increasing level of activity and ambition Local London is now building up the capacity of its Programme Unit by recruiting new team members.
You will play a key role in liaising with senior managers, Councillors and stakeholders, developing and implementing programme and financial reporting systems and supporting the Director and managers to achieve Local London's objectives.
So if you would relish the opportunity to be part of developing and managing exciting new and innovative social and economic strategies and programmes in a highly collaborative environment, working with our borough Leaders, Mayor and Chief Executives, now is the time to apply for one of our new roles.
