PolicyBristol aims to enhance the influence and impact on policy and practice of research at the University of Bristol. We are seeking an excellent individual to help coordinate PolicyBristol’s programme of activities and publications that will significantly increase the status, impact and awareness of policy-relevant research at the University, with a focus on Engineering and the Physical Sciences. Target audiences include: international, national and local government; public sector; think tanks; industry and practitioner groups; the private sector; and the media.
The Coordinator’s responsibilities will include: developing policy briefing papers, supporting policy engagement activities, delivering training sessions, and overseeing online and social media activity. Alongside the Director and the wider PolicyBristol team, the role holder will also play a key part in formulating the strategy for PolicyBristol’s next three years.

The Coordinator will liaise with academics and external stakeholders on a daily basis, so strong interpersonal skills are essential.
