An opportunity to join a team that supports vulnerable people across London

London Councils’ Grants and Community services teams’ support vulnerable people who are looked after, homeless, unemployed or are victims of sexual and domestic violence. 

In addition to the London Care Placements and Notify services, we work with Partner organisations - many of them voluntary and community sector organisations – to deliver a programme of grant and European funded projects that are managed by the Employment and Inclusion team at London Councils.

The job of the Business Administrator is to provide administrative and organisational support to London Councils by: helping to organise the team’s programme of activities; supporting the production and maintenance of accurate record keeping, and; providing general administrative support to the Division.

A keen eye for detail, the ability to understand guidance and instructions, intermediate-to-advanced Word and Excel skills and a talent for working with people are essential.

London Councils represents the 32 boroughs and the City of London. We aim to get the best deal for Londoners and to ensure that London’s councils have the resources, freedoms and powers to do the best possible job for their residents and local businesses.

We also run a number of services on behalf of the boroughs including the Freedom Pass, Taxicard and Health Emergency Badge.
