Policy Advisor

Policy Advisor

A leading national youth development charity is looking for a Policy Advisor to lead on its UK-wide policy work.

Based in central London, you'll work closely with the Director of Policy in a newly created position which will be central to the charity's external policy work. Due to the hands-on nature of this role, you'll have broad responsibilities across the policy spectrum, including policy research, policy briefings and reports and monitoring and evaluation. You'll also be expected to have a degree of flexibility, as the job likely requires some travel (mainly across the UK). Moreover, you will line manage a Business Analyst.

As such, the ideal candidate will have knowledge and experience of working on youth development policy and research, experience of applying evidence from research and practice to develop policy and of leading the implementation of policy change. Moreover, you'll have an understanding of Parliamentary and legislative processes and have excellent internal and external stakeholder management skills.

This is a full-time, permanent position paying 35,000 p.a. I will be submitting final applications on 11th April, however, the charity may interview before this date, with applications being sent on a rolling basis, so early applications are encouraged. If you are interested in this position, please send your most recent CV to harry.marven@harrishill.co.uk ; the application process will also include a cover letter. Please note that only suitable candidates will be contacted.
