About the role
This is an exciting and unique opportunity to play a leading role within a team that addresses workforce inequalities across the capital.
We are recruiting a role as part of a job-share arrangement in the Equalities team, within the Communities and Social Policy Unit, working three days a week (ideally Weds-Friday) with the existing permanent post-holder. The ideal candidate will be passionate about addressing structural equalities within London and will have a strong understanding of social policy and programme delivery. You will have experience of successfully managing a team and high-profile programme with strong stakeholder engagement skills.
As Principal Policy and Projects Officer you and your job-share colleague will be jointly responsible for the high-profile Workforce Integration Network programme. This programme seeks to create systemic change in London’s workplaces, with a focus on addressing labour market inequalities and increasing opportunities for underrepresented groups, particularly Black Londoners and Londoners of Pakistani and Bangladeshi heritage. You will work closely with a wide range of stakeholders including local and national government, voluntary and community sector organisations, commercial organisations and more.
The Equalities team sits in the Communities and Social Policy Unit at the GLA. The team consists of two sub-teams: one that delivers the Mayor’s statutory equalities duties and a range of activities to address structural inequalities within London, and this team delivers the Workforce Integration Network programme.
The Principal Policy and Projects Officer reports to the Head of Equalities and plays a key role in the Equalities management team. You will manage a warm and highly motivated team of around 5 members of staff.
