Definition of an Alderman
The City of London Alderman is one of the oldest elected roles in the UK. Each of the twenty-five wards elects one Alderman for a term of up to six years and several will see elections in 2022. Together, they form the Court of Aldermen, one of the three governing Courts of the City of London. Their role is to encourage trade, champion standards, build skills in the workforce and promote the City as an attractive place to live and do business.
Aldermen also sit on the Court of Common Council which is responsible for the overall policies and resources of the City Corporation, and sets its multi-year strategy and plans. They are also appointed to the boards of a range of charities, as well as the governing bodies of the City’s academy schools in neighbouring boroughs. Many Aldermen have a financial or professional services background and are well-placed to develop further the City’s relations with this key sector.
Each year, the Lord Mayor is elected from amongst the Aldermen – and those looking to stand for the mayoralty will first need to be elected as an Alderman.
