Kennington Park Business Centre, London, SW9 (currently home based)
London Plus is a young charity. It is a bold idea to champion London’s civil society through insight, influence and connections, to help it address the capital’s most pressing social challenges. We aim to be the go-to place to bring about positive change for Londoners and the diverse organisations and networks that make up civil society in this great city.
So far, we have successfully established the charity and built a position and reputation in the sector across London. We have played an important role in the response to COVID-19 and contributed to a growing appreciation during the pandemic of the value and importance of civil society. We have strong, trusted and productive links with London’s voluntary and community sector, charitable funders, the GLA, London Councils and specialist groups. These have deepened in recent months.
A key feature of our work is supporting networks. This is a crucial part of how we directly support civil society across the capital and contributes to our credibility in London-wide discussions with policy-makers and others. We need to provide the best possible support for these networks to reach our, as well as their, full potential. We want to be at the forefront of practice worldwide in running and supporting networks.
This is your opportunity to help develop and lead something special for London. You will be joining our small and agile team working on vital issues to help communities across the city. We welcome applications from all sectors; the important thing is that you understand and are passionate about helping civil society in London. If you are ambitious to achieve more and relish a challenge, and are collaborative as well as pragmatic in your approach, we would love to hear from you.
If you have experience with multiple stakeholders and a background of working in a not-for-profit or charity environment, this is the ideal opportunity to grow and develop with us whilst making a real impact on the effectiveness of charity networks in London.
We’ve got a clear vision, helping Londoners to thrive, championing London’s civil society and values, promoting equality and championing diversity, collaborating, learning, acting with integrity, being bold and looking for the bigger picture.
