Working at Centre for London

Workplace and benefits

Our office in Borough is a great place to work. However, the past year has shown that flexibility of working location brings many benefits. We’re looking for people who are able to work in London from the office at least some of the time. We strongly encourage new starters to work from the office at least three days per week. We currently require full time members of staff to work from the office a minimum of three days per week.

We also know there is more to life than work. Our flexible hours policy allows staff to make sure work fits around their personal lives. We accept applications for job shares if partners apply together. Benefits include 25 days holiday per year (plus extra days during office closure between Christmas and New Year), a contributory pension, cycle and savings schemes, and eye care vouchers.

All staff have access to an Employee Assistance Programme, and we have an organisational commitment to promoting good mental and physical health.

Our support for working parents and those with caring responsibilities includes enhanced maternity pay (12 weeks at full pay), enhanced provision for supporting partners (three weeks leave at full pay), and we encourage shared parental leave.

People who have worked with us for more than two years may also be able to take career breaks of up to six months, giving them time for personal or professional development, or to simply take an extended holiday.
