This role offers the chance to make a genuine difference to the lives of thousands of people, every day and feel proud of being able to see your work on display across the city.

You’ll also be making your mark in a new, forward-looking and evolving team which is enthusiastic, high profile and media savvy.

About us

A rich heritage. A strong commercial focus. An iconic brand. They all add up to make Transport for London a unique public service – and a great place to develop your career.

You will also be working closely as part of an integrated team, with representatives from Research, the Press Office, Stakeholder  Engagement and Online.

What you’ll need

This special role calls for an equally special individual. Your impressive track record in campaign management and marketing communications will be complemented by budgeting, presentation and relationship management skills. Flexible, highly organised and politically aware, you’ll be eager to take ownership of your work and keen to take on more responsibility. You could be in an agency, or currently working in a marketing role client-side, either way you’ll welcome the chance to make this role your own and bring your expertise to a wide audience.
