Job Title: Policy and Communications Co-ordinator
Working For: Commonweal Housing
Salary: £30,000 per annum
Commonweal Housing is an action learning charity using housing with support services as models to redress social justice. We provide the bespoke housing for our projects, and since 2007 we have allocated around £10million for such projects.
As Policy and Communications Co-ordinator, working full-time in Southwark with our project leads you will formulate our policy messages, decide how to shape them and then develop and deliver the strategy for effectively communicating our growing range of positive project findings and aligning our PR to public policy research initiatives.
You will need to have a good understanding of the public policy and political environment and its current and potential implications for the charity. You will be regularly presenting to Trustee Board meetings, ensuring Trustees and colleagues are involved and updated on external affairs activities to embed support for communications activities.
Educated to degree level, or equivalent, you will possess experience of working in a communications or PR environment, with strong written skills and design skills along with demonstrable knowledge of a range of communication channels (including print, broadcast and online media).
Experience in the field of housing and homelessness would be an advantage but more important is demonstrable experience of policy research and external affairs, along with a good understanding of the parliamentary and public service environment. A track record of building successful working relationships with a range of internal and external stakeholders, strong organisational skills and the ability to work on your own initiative are all a must.
Closing Date: 24 April 2017
Interview date: 2nd May 2017 in Southwark, SE1.
