London is a bustling hub for international development nongovernmental organizations, consultancy firms, and governmental organizations alike. Westminster is home to the United Kingdom government’s Department for International Development — responsible for expending the majority of the country’s official development assistance — while the headquarters for a large number of international and local charities are also located throughout the city.

The cosmopolitan and internationally accessible nature of the capital makes it a prime location for global development employers to be based. Charities can receive up to 80 percent tax relief on property rent from the U.K. government and the number of cultural centers, development experts, and global development events held in London has created a close community of international development professionals.
