Business Support Officer
Meeting the Mayor’s targets for housing
The housing crisis is one of the greatest challenges facing the capital – and the Mayor of London has ambitious plans to tackle it. The Greater London Authority (GLA) is working hard to make genuinely affordable homes a reality for more people. The scale of the challenge is huge, but so is our commitment. Together we can build a London for everyone.
You’ll provide the data and information that help senior management and operational staff monitor delivery against the Mayor’s housing targets. This means carrying out in-depth analysis of housing and land data to create tailored reports. Expect to produce options appraisals, risk analysis and other recommendations, and to provide strategic leadership on all aspects of programme management.
We’re looking for someone with management-level experience of developing new approaches, procedures and policies for large investment programmes. This should include the implementation of bespoke data management functions. Advanced-level expertise in the use of data management tools such as JasperSoft, Report Server, Business Objects or Excel is therefore essential. Your proven problem-solving and analysis abilities will be matched by well-developed communication skills.
Please apply using your CV and a two page (maximum) covering letter. It is important you provide evidence of your skills, knowledge and experience and information outlined in the person specification for the role. Short listing will be carried out on the information on your CV and covering letter.
London's diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to ensure our workforce reflects London's diversity at all levels. You will be able to demonstrate a clear commitment to, and achievement in, promoting diversity, equality and inclusion. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.
We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We would welcome applications from candidates who are seeking part time work as this role is open to job share.
In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days’ annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan and a career average pension scheme.
