Job Description

A great development opportunity for an executive with experience gained in Parliament, consultancy or in-house, looking to further their career in a business setting and take ownership of key policy areas as an integral member of a small, busy team.  

Acting as secretariat to a number of committees, you’ll  undertake research and provide political intelligence and insight on policy, and work with leading industry figures to develop policy position papers and consultation responses. With additional responsibility for mapping out and engaging with external stakeholders, you’ll  attend and participate in policy events and meetings, and represent the organisation at conferences and events.

Proven experience of developing policy is essential as is an understanding of parliamentary process, and the successful candidate will bring strong research, information seeking and organisational abilities, coupled with excellent written and verbal communication and strong stakeholder management skills.  

One year contract initially, with potential to become permanent.
