Job Details

Work for the UK Women’s Budget Group!

The Women’s Budget Group is a network of feminist economists, researchers, policy experts and activists that works towards a more gender equal society in which women’s financial independence gives them greater autonomy.

We are currently recruiting for a Public Affairs Officer to join our small staff team in our Farringdon office. Some home working is possible. WBG is operates a flexible working policy.

28 days annual leave (pro rata) plus public holidays. Workplace pension scheme

Public Affairs Officer (2-year contract)

Hours: 30 hours per week. We are open to job share applications and the post can be worked over four or five days. Some out of hours working will be required for which TOIL will be given.

Place of work: WBG offices in London for at least part of the week. Some home working is possible, but the nature of the job will require regular meetings in Westminster.

As part of our programme of growth we have secured funding to employ a Public Affairs Officer to build our capacity to influence policy makers.

The successful candidate will work with the Director to develop a proactive parliamentary and public affairs strategy and to build our capacity to have an impact beyond our existing network of allies through sustained relationship building. This would include supporting members of our network to translate their academic research into accessible briefings and responses to government consultations and parliamentary enquiries.

This is an exciting time to join the Women’s Budget Group. We have a growing staff team and have built a strong reputation for analysing the impact of UK Government policies and for research into alternative policies that would promote gender equality. This includes our ground-breaking intersectional analysis of austerity with the Runnymede Trust, funded by Barrow Cadbury, which was widely quoted in parliament and cited in the conclusions of the UN Rapporteur on extreme poverty following his visit to the UK.

Closing Date: 18 February 2019
