Job Description

A pivotal role with a UK wide remit, you’ll be part of a team charged with creating and delivering policy and public affairs programmes to engage and influence political stakeholders within central and local government as well as Parliamentarians and third parties.

In addition to proactive outreach, developing communications materials and attending events, you’ll keep abreast and advise senior management of policy developments, formulating response on behalf of the organisation and making interventions, while providing leadership to less experienced members of the team.

In-depth understanding of the workings of Government and Westminster is essential as are strong writing and presentation skills, and you’ll demonstrate a track record in delivering impactful public affairs campaign and building relations with stakeholders at all levels.
