Who we are
London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) is the organisation that the Mayor of London has set up to drive the regeneration of the area of east London around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
This means that we do many different things, from building new homes, schools, universities, cultural institutions and business premises; to managing a beautiful Park and fantastic sporting venues; to running community events and sports programmes.
To do all this we work with our wider family within the GLA group (including the Greater London Authority and Transport for London) and use our shared resources across our group. Your role will therefore be central to our mission as an organisation as well as the other group organisations.
We are making Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the vibrant communities surrounding into an attractive and inspiring place where people come together to achieve great things; a place where local talent is celebrated and the benefits of regeneration can be shared by all; and a place that attracts investment, improving local lives as well as driving national economic growth.
More than 38 million people have visited Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park since it reopened after the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. An additional 40,000 jobs are expected to be created on the Park by 2036, plus 33,000 new homes in the wider Stratford area by 2036, including the London Legacy Development Corporation’s developments at Chobham Manor, East Wick, Sweetwater, Pudding Mill, Bridgewater, Stratford Waterfront, Rick Roberts Way and Hackney Wick.
The London Legacy Development Corporation is also entering into an exciting period with the construction of the East Bank project – a new powerhouse of culture, education, innovation and growth – which will create sites at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for Sadler’s Wells, BBC Music and the V&A as well as UAL’s London College of Fashion and University College London.
One of the key aspects of this role is leading the internal engagement aspects of our Transition programme. As a Development Corporation, our powers and responsibilities will evolve, and from the end of 2024 continuing responsibilities will be picked up by successor arrangements, this could be an existing organisation, or one set up specifically to take this work forward (this is referred to as Transition).
What we’re looking for
The Communications, Marketing and Strategy Directorate is looking for an Internal Engagement Manager to take responsibility for LLDC’s internal engagement strategy. The post holder will be responsible for developing the internal engagement strategy and accompanying plans, and for leading day-to-day delivery including overseeing all aspects of internal communications and a range of priority internal engagement campaigns (e.g. Inclusion and Diversity, and Transition). Whilst Transition is a long way off, LLDC is entering into a period of change; we are looking for someone who can rise to the challenge and ensure that employees at all levels of the organisation fully understand and feel part of that change.
Who we are looking for
The successful candidate will be a subject matter expert in internal engagement, able to bring a wealth of previous experience to the role, be able to think strategically but also comfortable delivering tactically. They will be flexible, self-driven and confident in challenging established practices and driving forward new approaches. They will be able to quickly develop constructive relationships including at the most senior levels of management.
