Policy Officer (Fixed Term)

Role description

For thirty years, Stonewall has been campaigning to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people. Join our team as Policy Officer and contribute to our highly successful policy influencing programme to make a real difference to the lives of LGBT people.

As part of our Policy team, you will be responsible for understanding the many different forms of inequality that affect the lives of LGBT people, and working across the team to support the delivery of our Policy and Parliamentary strategy. You’ll be responsible for keeping the Policy team and senior Stonewall staff briefed with up-to-date information on unfolding political developments, and drafting correspondence to Parliamentarians and Government.

This fixed-term six-month role provides an excellent opportunity for you to not only make an impact on the lives of LGBT people, but also to develop your skillset by getting involved in making real policy changes and working with a broad range of influencers.

The successful candidate must have strong analytical skills and writing abilities. You’ll have experience of interpreting research findings and statistics and presenting these clearly. You’ll have excellent interpersonal skills to engage and influence a variety of audiences and key stakeholders. You will be highly organised with an ability to work to tight and changeable deadlines, and have a strong commitment to the aims and values of our work.

If you have the right mix of skills and experience and a passion for LGBT equality, we want to hear from you. Please complete and return the application and recruitment analysis form by 9.30am on Wednesday 23rd October 2019. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 6th November 2019.
