An exciting opportunity to grow the Centre’s reputation and shape policymaking in the capital.
In this role you will lead Centre for London’s communications team to build the Centre’s established profile, grow its influence and shape policymaking in the capital.
This role would suit someone who has experience of developing and implementing powerful campaigns that have grabbed the headlines and helped to create positive change. To do this job well, you’ll need to be able to distil complex research reports into compelling communications strategies that achieve impact. You might have held a similar role in a charity or an academic organisation and, ideally, you’ll have management experience.
This is a three or four day-a-week role with a strategic focus. You will lead on the delivery of our communications strategy, supported by a Senior Communications Officer, part-time Communications Officer and Senior Designer. You will also be the driving force behind the Centre’s public affairs activity, working closely with senior management to increase our influence among the policy community.
Centre for London has a broad focus. This means that one day you might be speaking to a journalist about our research on affordable housing, the next day you could be writing a communications strategy for a conference on sustainability. You don’t need to be an expert in all the policy issues we work on – but you will need to be able to learn quickly and think creatively.
The successful candidate will join the team soon after London elects its next Mayor, and as Britain negotiates its future relationship with the EU. This is an exciting time to join us and help build our profile within City Hall, government and across the city.
Full details can be found in the job description. If you meet the criteria in the person specification and are excited about this opportunity, we’d love to hear from you.
The successful candidate must have permission to work in the UK by the start of their employment.
