Job Description


Interim Head of Policy – Education

c £65,000  (pro-rata)

A senior level role with an influential organisation, this is a fixed term contract of 3-6 months, to cover a secondment. Reporting to the CEO and leading a team, you’ll be responsible for the strategic development and delivery of policy, public affairs and media relations across the UK.

In addition to working with senior level colleagues to ensure consistent messaging and provide political insight and concise briefings, you’ll lead on engagement with diverse external stakeholders and represent the organisation at events and meetings.

Extensive experience in policy development and public affairs is essential and you’ll be a strategic thinker with strong stakeholder engagement, influencing and leadership skills. Knowledge of education policy would be a plus but not essential, and with a UK wide remit, you’ll need to be flexible with working arrangements and happy to travel.
