You’ll find plenty of ways to realise your potential here, with a range of professional, career and personal development opportunities.

It all starts with a comprehensive induction programme, and continues with mentoring, courses and other learning resources to

And because we know that everyone develops in different ways, we’ll support you with flexible learning methods that suit your individual preferences and needs.


We pride ourselves on providing great working conditions. But there’s more to life with us than work. We also get to enjoy a variety of social and sporting activities, based out of the City Hall office near London Bridge.

There is a diverse range of clubs and interest groups that you can sign up to, including the GLA football team, cricket team, running club and film club. The GLA social committee also organises events throughout the year, including quiz nights and themed evenings in London’s Living Room.

You can also get involved in our active staff networks including the Women’s Network, LGBT+ network and Wellbeing Network.
