Interview Date: 5 & 6 September 2018

The profile of EU funds has rarely been so high on the agenda.  But it’s business as usual for the GLA’s European Programmes Management Unit (EPMU) as the programmes will continue beyond Brexit, with replacement domestic programmes expected from 2021.


You will help to implement, manage and monitor the 2014-20 European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) programmes for London, overseen by EPMU, which includes the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Social Fund (ESF).


Working with internal and external stakeholders, you will contract manage programmes and projects. You will ensure contracted outputs, results and expenditure meet targets and that evidence is in place to demonstrate project delivery. You will initiate remedial action where needed, and undertake checks prior to payments being made.  Your caseload of ERDF or ESF projects may vary depending on business needs. 


We are looking to recruit someone ideally with ERDF experience or other Wider EU / ESF experience.  You will understand the importance of stakeholder relationships both within, and outside, the GLA.  You will have excellent written and oral communication skills, and enjoy paying attention to detail.
