The Role
The Legion is seeking a talented, committed and enthusiastic public affairs and campaigns professional to join its highly effective Public Affairs and Public Policy team in a newly created role. In collaboration with Area Managers and other colleagues in the Legion’s Midlands region, you will establish a visible and vocal campaigning presence at community and local authority level across the Midlands, building relationships with key stakeholders and maximising our influence in this increasingly important area of decision-making. You will report on local policy developments and welfare trends, organise campaign events across the region, and help to establish a network of supporters locally who are willing to advocate on behalf of the Armed Forces community.

You will be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of local government and community activism, and be familiar with both traditional and digital campaigning techniques. You will be a strong team player, have a proven track record of delivering campaign outcomes, have excellent communication skills, and be a self-starter who is confident working remotely.

The role will be based in Birmingham, although travel across the region is expected - alternative office locations are available, including Derby, Bristol, Aylesbury or Colchester.
