About us

Local Partnerships LLP is a public sector joint venture, wholly owned by HM Treasury, the Local Government Association and the Welsh Government, and exists solely to provide commercial support and deliver expertise to the public sector.

We were created by the public sector, are in-house to the public sector, and we work solely for the public sector (government, local authorities, local public bodies and the community focused third sector). This means that we are never commercially conflicted in the advice that we give, as we are never also advising private sector clients.

Our primary purpose is to strengthen the intelligent client capability and capacity of the public sector, particularly in their commercial interactions with the private sector. We do so by deploying senior commercial specialists that provide advice and support to local public bodies. Our ethos is to share freely our learning for the benefit of the wider public sector.


About the role

We are seeking to recruit Project Directors (specifically in in the housing, waste and PPP/PFI sectors). We also welcome applications from those with experience and expertise that will add to our capability and capacity in other areas of our business.

Project Directors are responsible for the successful delivery of a major stream of business activity for Local Partnerships. Project Directors may work on their own but will more often form part of a team of different specialists undertaking an assignment stretching over weeks or months, or occasionally years, for a client who will typically be a central government department or one or more councils.

Project Directors are assigned to a programme area headed by a Programme Director. While every assignment is different, Project Directors typically bring their professional expertise and project management skills to bear on complex projects and problems and ensure the Local Partnerships’ quality standards are met in completing the assignment on time and budget. They will also contribute to the development of new business for Local Partnerships.


Salary for Project Directors starts at £75,000 per annum.


We value diversity and encourage applications from all sections of the community.
