An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Building Safety team in the GLA’s Housing & Land directorate.

Following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower in 2017, a crisis has unfolded with many buildings found to be unsafe. The Government has announced a number of funding programmes to address this crisis and the GLA is administering this funding in London. 

We are looking for a Programme Officer to support delivery of the Government’s Waking Watch Relief Fund, designed to pay for the installation of fire alarm systems in buildings with unsafe cladding. This is a high profile and urgent task which is central to achieving the Mayor’s vision that all Londoners should benefit from a safe, good quality home without facing additional costs.

The successful candidate will provide a vital support function for the programme and wider team. This includes monitoring and reporting on programme performance, assisting with processing applications and payments, and dealing with correspondence from stakeholders.

Technical experience and qualifications in fire safety are not necessary for this role. You will have experience of working on a complex project or programme, ideally on a high-profile funding programme or a housing-related project. You will be well-organised, good at building effective relationships with everyone from senior decision-makers to members of the public, and have excellent attention to detail.

Please ensure your Supporting Statement clearly addresses all of the Job description and Personal Specification Criteria.

The role will be based at City Hall.  Further information about the relocation of City Hall can be found here;
