Job Title: Policy and Partnership Coordinator
Working For: HOPE not hate Charitable Trust
Salary: £28,000 per annum (18 months fixed term contract)
HOPE not hate Charitable Trust (HNHCT) are looking to hire a policy and partnership coordinator to work on a new project.
The HNHCT and Centre for Towns report, Fear, Hope and Loss, laid out some of the core drivers of hate: a feeling of loss, a lack of opportunity and economic decline, most profound in post-industrial and coastal towns across England and Wales. This new project will find policy solutions that can turn these communities around and bring hope to these places, in order to stem resentment, which is all too often channelled towards migrants and minorities.
Your role in this position will be to coordinate the community and stakeholder engagement work on the ground, to develop and nurture relationships, to build networks, to manage these networks and build sustainability, all of which will shape policy change.
You will liaise with stakeholders, local authorities, and community activists to establish and then build and manage steering groups in three pilot areas. You will work with these networks to facilitate locally-embedded change in policy and practice, to challenge hate and to work for greater inclusion across the three pilot areas. You will also work towards building a national towns leadership network and working with them to facilitate national change.
This is a perfect opportunity for someone who cares about making our communities inclusive for everyone.
The role will be office-based in London but will require some travel to work with partners across three pilot areas in England and Wales.
Skills and Experience
You’ll be a self-starter with experience of multi-stakeholder engagement, with strong interpersonal, relationship building and organisational skills. You’ll also have strong research and written skills, be computer literate and have an interest in policy.
You will be a good fit for this role if you have experience or knowledge of working with local government. You will have a passion for challenging prejudice and racism, and building resilience in our towns and in communities facing a multiplicity of challenges.
