The Mayor’s Fund for London is a pan-London, non-political, independent charity, championing opportunities for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds. We believe that all young people, regardless of their starting point in life, should be able to thrive in their community, forge fulfilling careers and are able to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities that London has to offer.
Our work in the fields of food, wellbeing, numeracy and employment raises awareness of the barriers facing young Londoners, promotes the activities which best increases their opportunities and brings together the partnerships to make a measurable impact on young Londoners’ lives. In 2020, we supported over 40,000 young Londoners aged 4-24 across all 33 boroughs, working in partnership with 721 schools, 110 community organisations and 195 employers, 173 charities, social enterprises and local authorities.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is our patron.
PURPOSE OF THE ROLE
The role will help the Head of Marketing and Communications raise the profile of the Mayor’s Fund for London (MFL), establish and grow a network of media contacts, plan and execute events across the charity and develop marketing and communications collateral that positions the charity as a champion for young people in London. MFL is in a critical phase of its annual business plan with a series of high-profile events, corporate partnership development, and fundraising activities ahead. These will be central to the postholder’s responsibilities from the outset.
We are looking for a confident, outgoing individual, comfortable in managing competing priorities and able to work collaboratively with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. The successful candidate will be hungry to increase our profile, utterly reliable in their day to day activities, have a keen eye for detail and excellent writing and organisational skills. In return we offer a role in a growing, enthusiastic, fast moving team and the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of young Londoners.
The Mayor’s Fund for London is currently based at City Hall near London Bridge. The charity will be moving to a new location on Union Street, SE1, from later this year. The organisation will be moving to a hybrid working arrangement, with staff likely to be expected to be in the office two to three days per week. The role will involve occasional evening and early morning events so a flexible approach to working hours is required. Travel across London for meetings or events will also be part of the role, including from days when the postholder may be working from home.
