London Legacy Development Corporation is recruiting

QUEEN ELIZABETH OLYMPIC PARK: The London Legacy Development Corporation’s purpose is to use the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of the London 2012 Games to change the lives of people in east London

WHO WE are
Formed in April 2012, the London Legacy Development Corporation’s purpose is to use the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of the London 2012 Games and the creation of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to change the lives of people in east London and drive growth and investment in London and the UK, by developing an inspiring and innovative place that people want – and can afford - to live, work and visit.

We are responsible for delivering one of the most important Olympic legacy promises made in the original London 2012 Games bid. This pledge concerns the physical legacy of the Games – the long- term planning, development, management and maintenance of the Park and its impact on the surrounding area after the London 2012 Games.

We are a Mayoral Development Corporation and therefore directly accountable to Londoners through the Mayor of London.

We work closely with a number of organisations including the Mayor of London, the Greater London Authority, central government, our neighbouring boroughs, residents in local communities, local organisations, businesses and regeneration agencies and national and international sporting, cultural and leisure organisations.

Our history
On Wednesday 8th February 2012, the Mayor of London announced his formal decision to create a Mayoral Development Corporation responsible for the regeneration legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The LLDC, which came into being on 1st April 2012, continues the work of the Olympic Park Legacy Company, with responsibility for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the surrounding areas, as well as taking on some of the assets and responsibilities of existing regeneration agencies in the area, such as the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation (LTGDC). In October 2012, the Legacy Corporation also took over planning powers from the LTGDC and the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).

What we do
It is our task to transform and integrate one of the most challenged areas in the UK into world-class, sustainable and thriving neighbourhoods.

This will create a new part of the city in east London – an inclusive community, a thriving business zone and a must-see destination where people will choose to live, work and play, and return time and time again. We have many different roles and our responsibility stretches beyond the boundaries of the Park itself.

London Legacy Development Corporation is currently recruiting for the following positions:

Design Principal – Accessibility and Inclusive Design

Senior Finance Business Partner

Head of Finance – Development
