The Mayor’s draft Economic Development Strategy is a call to action to everyone with a stake in the future of London’s economy to get behind the Mayor’s vision of a fairer, more prosperous city. The Mayor believes that a strong economy and a fairer city should go hand in hand. London has one of the most dynamic and prosperous economies in the world – but this prosperity has not been shared by all Londoners.  The Mayor has promised to be the most pro-business Mayor of London ever, but is clear that the economy should be one in which all companies play by the rules and where no community is left behind.


The Programme Director for Economic Fairness will lead on ensuring London’s economy delivers for all Londoners, particularly low wage Londoners.  The postholder will work across the GLA Group and with a broad variety of external stakeholders, such as the business community, Trade Unions and the Third Sector. The role, reporting into the Mayoral Director, Policy, will be responsible for: the co-ordination of pan-GLA activity to ensure the GLA Group leads by example; direct delivery of projects; and engagement with the business community to ensure it adopts Economic Fairness practices.  Key features of the programme include the Good Work Standard – which sets measures for businesses to create better, more equal places to work - and the London Living Wage.
