Centre for London is a politically independent think tank and charity focused on solving London’s critical challenges. Through its research and events, the Centre acts as a critical friend to London’s leaders and policymakers, promotes a wider understanding of the challenges facing London, and develops long-term, rigorous and radical solutions for the capital.
We are a small charity with eighteen members of staff. Everyone is passionate about London and committed to making it a better city. We have a friendly, fun and collaborative team culture. We invest in our team to help them succeed; offering on the job support, lunch and learns, whole team and individual training.
We celebrate London’s rich and diverse culture and we want our team to reflect the city we serve. We’re a London Living Wage and an equal opportunities employer - an ethos which also drives our work as we convene advisory groups and round-table discussions and public events. We value the ideas and input of every team member and we regularly hold team-wide sessions to give everyone the opportunity to shape our future work.
We also know that there’s much more to life than work. Our flexible hours policy allows staff to make sure work fits around their personal lives. People who have worked with us for more than two years are also able to take career breaks of up-to six months, giving them time for personal or professional development (or to simply take an extended holiday!).
