In this role you will be working with some of London’s top journalists and support its leading politicians to ensure that the voice of London’s boroughs is clearly heard on issues as diverse as housing and transport, public health and employment support, environmental protection and education.
You will need to be able to explain how London’s boroughs represent and serve London’s communities. You will need to be able to help journalists understand the challenges they face in doing so and how they are addressing those challenges.
