Tackling London’s housing crisis is Sadiq Khan’s first priority as Mayor of London. With a substantial financial settlement to invest alongside robust planning policy, the delivery of affordable housing across the city is now increasing on previous years.

 

The work of Housing and Land is right at the heart of this effort to optimise the delivery of more genuinely affordable homes.

You will be able to understand, interpret and present complex sets of data and contractual relationships through the delivery of investment led projects.  You will be able to able to work with partners, influence decision making and bring people with you. Successful candidates will be able to motivate internal and external stakeholders to further the Mayor’s aims to grow these sectors across the capital.
