Job Title: Policy Advocacy Coordinator
Working For: RESULTS UK
RESULTS has a long and successful history of providing policy input to decision makers in institutions that make crucial choices in international development such as DFID and the EC, but also important multilateral agencies such as the World Bank, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, and SUN (Scaling up Nutrition). We also are a strong policy voice within our sector, influencing and supporting other Civil Society organisations. Much is known about how development can be more effective but this knowledge does not always inform policy and policy-in-practice. Our role is less focussed on creating new field research, but more about translating the best evidence into succinct, effective, policy recommendations that are taken up and implemented by these major development actors to help end poverty.
The heart of the policy team’s role is to provide solid policy evidence and messaging to underpin all of RESULTS work. The policy team goes beyond the production of this evidence: it also delivers it as highly-focussed advocacy messaging to the stakeholders who require the most detailed and nuanced levels of technical briefing. These audiences particularly include civil servants and the staff of key development agencies and civil society organisations, but also the parliamentarians and members of our grassroots network who are the strongest champions for our work.
The position of Policy Advocacy Coordinator will provide crucial support to the Policy Advocacy
team. The post will be ideally suited for an individual with some work experience at the beginning of a career in international development, particularly in policy or research or public affairs. We are looking for someone who will be proactive, efficient and flexible in supporting our policy advocacy work. Having a can-do attitude that includes the more administrative aspects of the role is essential. This post will provide good opportunities for developing project management and advocacy skills; an understanding of key international development issues; research and writing for advocacy; and experience of working with civil servants.
Closing Date: 25 April 2018
Interviews will be scheduled towards the end of the week commencing 30 April.
Starting date: The position is available immediately.
Please apply by sending a CV (maximum 3 pages) and cover letter (maximum
2 pages) in English to firstname.lastname@example.org Do not send any other documents or attachments at this
time. The closing date for applications is Wednesday 25th April at 5pm.
