Working at Centre for London

Our working culture

Everyone at Centre for London is passionate about London and committed to making it a better city. We have a friendly, fun and collaborative team culture. We invest in our team to help them succeed, offering onthejob support and opportunities for skills development. We value the ideas and input of every team member and regularly hold team-wide sessions to give everyone the opportunity to shape our future work.

We’re a London Living Wage and an equal opportunity employer and were accredited with the Mayor’s Good Work Standard. These values of equality also inform our work. To prevent pay inequality we are not able to negotiate beyond the advertised salary amount or range. We have a detailed pay policy that outlines how pay increases are calculated and at which times of the year they are offered.

We are looking to create a workforce that truly reflects the diversity of London. Our workplace is somewhere you can be yourself and achieve success based on merit. We are committed to reducing unconscious bias in our selection processes. Staff who shortlist applications will not see applicants’ personal information before they select candidates for interviews. This includes your name and responses to our diversity monitoring questions.

If your experience does not match the person specification but you feel strongly that you have transferable experience and an interest in the work we do, we still welcome your application.

We are not able to sponsor visas, so all applicants must have the right to work in the UK at the start of their employment.
