Salary: competitive plus car allowance and private medical insurance

Based: Gravesend and London

The Thames Vision provides a 20-year framework for the commercial and cultural development of the tidal Thames, which runs through the heart of London and out to the North Sea.

The Vision was developed with wide stakeholder involvement and published in 2016. It features six goals centred on greater use of the river, whether for travel, trade, sport of leisure. The Mayor of London has adopted many of the Thames Vision goals in the draft London Plan and Transport Strategy.

We are looking to recruit a Head of Thames Vision Delivery to drive forward delivery of the Vision goals, actively engaging partner organisations, monitoring and reporting progress.

We are looking for someone who is as comfortable in a policy environment, as engaging with stakeholders and reporting progress. The successful candidate will have a positive, can do attitude, ready to muck in and get things done.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Port of London Authority and make a real difference, making sure the Thames is firmly embedded on the policy agenda for London and the south east.
