The City of London Corporation can trace its origins back to the middle ages, and in the 21st Century has a special role that goes beyond that of a normal local authority.
The Corporation plays a key role in sustaining London’s status as the preeminent global capital of business and finance, attracting new business to the capital and the whole UK. This work includes the Lord Mayor’s role as an international trade ambassador and the Policy Chairman’s guidance that set the strategic direction of the organisation.
As one of the leading patrons of the arts and culture nationally, the Corporation provides support to such internationally renowned institutions as the Barbican Centre, London Symphony Orchestra, Museum of London and Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Through its charity, the City Bridge Trust, the Corporation works in partnership with local communities to increase skills, employment and opportunities for all Londoners. The City of London Corporation maintains public spaces and gardens within the square mile, as well as major green spaces in Greater London, including Hampstead Heath and Epping Forest.
ING is consulting with the City of London Corporation to provide strategic advice and campaigns that promote the City as an exceptional place to work, visit and do business, with surprising and diverse mix of companies and opportunities.
