Whoever gets the job will be required to champion the UK capital's night time culture and economy.
Whoever lands the role will be tasked with shaping London's future as a 24-hour city, according to the job page, while also "championing the value of London's night time culture [and] developing and diversifying London's night time economy." The job is 2.5 days per week with an annual salary of £35,000.
"Working with the Mayor, the Night Time Commission, local authorities, businesses, the Metropolitan Police Service, Transport For London and other agencies, the Night Czar will create a vision for London as 24-hour city and a roadmap showing how the vision will be realised," the ad continues.
The idea of introducing a night time champion was supported by both the current mayor Sadiq Khan (pictured right) and his predecessor, Boris Johnson. The Night Czar will likely arrive at a crucial juncture for the city's club scene, with one of London's foremost venues, fabric, facing a battle with Metropolitan Police and Islington Council following the deaths of two 18-year-old clubbers. The situation led to Khan publicly calling on all parties to work together to "protect the future" of fabric. The city's 24-hour Night Tube service also began last weekend after months of delays.
