Assistant Director – Wholesale Market Stewardship

Closing date:  1 May 2023 - 12:00 am

Salary:  £78,160 - £89,490 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 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:

  • Market site business performance and safety across the three current Market locations,
  • Oversight and management of front-line staff across all three Markets via three General Managers (Circa 87 staff overall)
  • Development of the City’s Markets service to tenants.

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