Building the partnerships that create homes


The housing crisis is one of the greatest challenges facing the capital – and the Mayor of London has ambitious plans to tackle it. The Greater London Authority (GLA) is working hard to make genuinely affordable homes a reality for more people. The scale of the challenge is huge, but so is our commitment.

This will include a key role in accelerating the delivery of new homes on public land.

You will identify new initiatives and projects, lead them through the investment approvals process, and report on activity as they progress.

The person

This requires a sound grasp of technical issues such as procurement, design, project finance, viability and planning. Experience of structuring development agreements and joint ventures in the development sector is vital. You'll also need to understand the principles of placemaking. Adept at building effective relationships, you'll have exceptional influencing and negotiating skills.
