About London & Partners

London & Partners are the Mayor of London’s official promotional agency. The organisation works to promote the capital city to attract business, events, congresses and students from around the world.

Through their values, which include high performance, responsibility, personal growth and development, London & Partners look to promote London across the globe as the best city in the world in which to invest, work, study and visit.

The organisation also channels a great deal of its efforts into being a great place to work, where communicating well with colleagues is considered one of the most important factors contributing to its success.

Flexible working is also encouraged, and their Living Well, Working Well ethos actively promotes home and remote working.

Chief Executive Laura Citron is able to engage on an emotional level with employees on a day-to-day basis by involving all employees in her body of work. The role of leading comes very naturally to Laura, and she is very visible across the business in the open-plan office.
