Senior Programme Assurance Manager - (Part Time - Job Share)
Who we are
London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) is the organisation that the Mayor of London has set up to drive the regeneration of the area of east London around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
This means that we do many different things, from building new homes, schools, universities, cultural institutions and business premises; to managing a beautiful Park and fantastic sporting venues; to running community events and sports programmes.
To do all this we work with our wider family and use our shared resources across our group. Your role will therefore be central to our mission as an organisation as well as the other group organisations.
We are making Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the vibrant communities surrounding into an attractive and inspiring place where people come together to achieve great things; a place where local talent is celebrated and the benefits of regeneration can be shared by all; and a place that attracts investment, improving local lives as well as driving national economic growth.
More than 34 million people have visited Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park since it reopened after the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. An additional 40,000 jobs are expected to be created on the park by 2025, plus 33,000 new homes in the wider Stratford area by 2036, including the London Legacy Development Corporation’s developments at Chobham Manor, East Wick, Sweetwater, Pudding Mill, Bridgewater, Stratford Waterfront, Rick Roberts Way and Hackney Wick.
The London Legacy Development Corporation is also entering into an exciting period with the construction of the East Bank project – a new powerhouse of culture, education, innovation and growth – which will create sites at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for Sadler’s Wells, BBC Music and the V&A as well as UAL's London College of Fashion and University College London.
