Principal Policy Officer

Do you want to help London boroughs respond to their environmental and transport challenges? Do you want to drive investment in London’s active and public transport infrastructure, find solutions to London’s air quality crisis, the climate change challenge and develop creative and collective approaches to issues such as waste management and flooding? These are significant challenges, that will in turn present opportunities for you to shape service delivery approaches and leave your mark on the London transport and environment landscape.

We are looking for a highly motivated person with enthusiasm, innovative ideas and the ability to work flexibly and collaboratively in a dynamic, quickly changing policy environment.

It is desirable for you to have experience of contributing to policy development in either transport or environment policy areas.

The role will require that you analyse policy and statistical information and you will apply this analysis and policy development to improve results for Londoners and to make London’s case to both central government and a range of other, critical stakeholders in London government and beyond. This will require you to build effective relationships across sectors, communicate, negotiate with and influence a diverse range of stakeholders, as well as having experience of creative problem solving and managing a varied workload of projects in a pressurised environment.

London Councils represents the 32 boroughs and the City of London. We aim to get the best deal for Londoners and to ensure that London’s councils have the resources, freedoms and powers to do the best possible job for their residents and local businesses. We also run a number of services on behalf of the boroughs including the Freedom Pass, Taxicard and Health Emergency Badge.
