The Crystal Palace National Sports Centre is an iconic sporting venue which has served the local community in south London and hosted world class athletes and events over many decades. The Mayor of London has approved a significant capital budget to refurbish this historic sporting venue in order to bring it back to its former glory.

This role offers a unique opportunity to play an important part in its reinvigoration as a key heritage asset in the centre of Crystal Palace Park.

You will have experience of leading complex multifaceted capital projects or programmes in a political environment or organisation and bring strong communication skills to the role.

This role will be based at City Hall, in the Royal Docks (Kamal Chunchie Way, London, E16 1ZE). GLA staff are hybrid working up to 3 days a week in our offices and remotely depending on their role. As part of this, you will need to split your time between home working and coming into the office.
