Central London Forward (CLF) is the strategic sub-regional partnership covering the local authorities of:
- City of London
- Kensington and Chelsea
- Tower Hamlets
We work to the direction set out by our Board, consisting of the Leaders and Mayors of our member boroughs, to improve the lives of our residents by working together to drive inclusive growth and to ensure our residents can access the skills, jobs, and support required to benefit from central London’s dynamic economy.
Central London’s communities and business are facing a period of unprecedented challenge and change due to the impact of COVID-19. Local authorities are playing a key role in responding to this crisis, and over the coming months will be developing ways to protect and rebuild sustainable and safe high streets, town centres and workspaces. This role will support these efforts - working with colleagues across our member boroughs and other key stakeholders to identify new responses to the challenges we face and to share high quality insights and analysis that make a real difference for Londoners.
Working with the Senior Policy Manager you will take the lead on a range of projects focused on regeneration, placemaking and infrastructure in central London. This will include but is not limited to policy activity focusing on:
- High streets and town centres
- Licensing and planning
- Workspace and physical infrastructure
- Transport (including active travelling)
- Digital infrastructure
In this role you will have the opportunity to develop and lead a workstream of campaigns, communications and public affairs activity. You will lobby national government and other stakeholders to support the economic and social recovery of central London.
When you join this busy team, you will make a profound impact on the lives of our local community, while setting your own career on a steep trajectory. As such, you will need a good knowledge of the policy context for the role that local authorities play in place-making, regeneration, and enabling transport and digital infrastructure. You will have experience in using best practice and research to develop practical policy and programme recommendations, and excellent skills in communicating complex ideas accurately and concisely. You will have an open, enthusiastic and collaborative approach and be willing to take on new challenges. In return we will support you to build an extensive and powerful network of policy makers and influencers that will shape future delivery in London.
Roles like this are career-defining. You will contribute to projects that will transform the lives of thousands and will have the opportunity to share your insights and ideas on a London and national stage. So if you’re ready to take on a position that will expose you to forward-thinking projects and innovative thinkers, then we’d be delighted to hear from you.
Closing date: 28 August 2020 midnight.
