A working understanding of public policy and how city economies function would also be advantageous. You will be full of enthusiasm and policy ideas, adept at developing and delivering high profile projects, with strong analytical and communication skills. You will be based in City Hall’s economic and business policy team – a hardworking and friendly team that is passionate about London’s future development.

This role is fixed term or secondment opportunity for one year.
