Job share on the London Assembly’s Housing Committee (3 days a week)

Affordable housing delivery, the changing role of Housing Associations, the reality of shared ownership; these are just some of the topics the London Assembly’s Housing Committee is likely to be investigating over the coming year. Are you interested in working with Assembly Members from across the political spectrum to help lead and deliver the Committee’s work programme?


There’s no set template for our investigations: their success relies upon your vision and ability to gather robust and credible evidence for the Assembly Members to interrogate existing policies and programmes and to generate new insights and recommendations. We are looking primarily for someone with excellent research and analysis skills and experience of pulling together quantitative and qualitative material to create high quality written outputs. But you will also need astute political handling skills and the ability to reach out to both professional and public audiences to get their input into your work. If you like creative thinking, stakeholder engagement and have strong drafting skills, then this job will appeal to you. While experience of working in the housing sector is not a necessary requirement, it is highly desirable.


You will benefit from taking the lead on these and other projects, shaping them to create relevant and topical outputs. You will also gain experience of working with senior politicians from different political parties. You will work closely with your job share, the current housing lead, sharing tasks where appropriate and you will have the support of an experienced senior manager and a project team of research, committee and communications specialists.
