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. We’re broadening our attempts to work with partners across the London to bring forward more land in sustainable locations and to help meet growing demand by identifying a future pipeline of opportunities for housing growth.
The Area Teams lead the Mayor’s relationships with Investment Partners and Strategic Partnerships with some of London’s largest affordable housing providers. The teams manage complex investment models with developers to support new and scalable ideas to grow housing delivery.
The successful candidates will lead investment relationships with a portfolio of development partners delivering homes across London. You will also work with boroughs not only from a strategic housing and planning perspective but to increase their own direct affordable housing delivery. We’re looking for people with a well-rounded understanding of the development process who may also have some experience of regeneration, development finance, investment models, housing delivery and strategic planning.
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.
You will have an eye for detail, be comfortable with development appraisals, cashflows and business plan forecasts and a good understanding of the development process from land acquisition to sales.
