Local London is the strategic partnership for 8 unique boroughs, both North and South of the River Thames, serving 2.5 million residents and 100,000 businesses. Our Partnership is united in its determination that everyone across the Local London sub-region will benefit from growth.
We are an ambitious collective of Councils pushing for progress and innovation. With film studios in Enfield and Barking & Dagenham, major developments at Meridian Water, Thamesmead and Barking Riverside and the Woolwich Works Creative District, we have clear plans and potential.
Already collaborating on developing the cultural, creative and green economies across our sub-region, we know that by working together, we can provide skills and training to help our communities thrive post-pandemic.
Our focus is also about tackling longer-term issues to achieve real progress and innovation. We want improved infrastructure including transport that connects us across the Thames, investment into the major economic growth corridors and truly advanced digital infrastructure.
As our new Director, you will embrace the opportunity to act as an influencer for our sub-region. You will ensure that our local collective knowledge of geography, demography, economy and politics is brought together and our voices are heard by government. This varied role combines policy, lobbying and programme management and will see you working closely with Chief Executives, Council Leaders and Mayors. You will need an exceptional interest in and knowledge of the economic, policy and political context of the sub-region.
