We are recruiting a Policy and Project Officer to join the Social Integration Team in the Communities and Social Policy Unit – a hardworking and friendly team that’s passionate about London’s communities.

The new Policy and Project Officer will coordinate the delivery of key social integration initiatives and work with other Units in City Hall to support them to apply social integration principles.
