Assistant Director – Market Operations, Performance and Multimodal Logistics

Closing date:  27 March 2023 - 12:00 am

Salary:  £100,000 - £140,000 per annum

Client:  City of London

Following a strategic review of its three wholesale markets in 2017/18, the City has embarked on a major transformation and co-location strategy to ensure its Markets are fit for the 21st century and sustainable and to enable future expansion which is currently constrained at the existing locations. The City purchased a 42 acre site at Dagenham Dock in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham for this purpose. In November 2022 the City submitted a Private Bill to Parliament to ask for Royal Assent to move the first two of its Markets. This is a major undertaking and programme for the City, involving numerous internal and external stakeholders, tenants and Parliament.

Whilst proposals mature for the new site the City still runs three of the largest and most significant wholesale markets in the country.

This role is responsible for leading on:

  1. Market Business performance and assurance programmes,
  2. Development of the City’s Markets’ Operations, and
  3. Development of the City’s Markets Transport Strategy across current and future sites.

These workstreams will require working with an extended team of City Officers and external consultants and stakeholders.
