Job Title: Senior Public Policy Advocate
Working For: StepChange Debt Charity
Salary: £37,850 (inclusive of London weighting)
We are looking for a committed, creative and knowledgeable policy professional with a track record of producing effective, high quality policy research to join our London-based team.
This is a vital role for the charity, working within an experienced team to speak up for those affected by financial difficulty and problem debt. The position is an opportunity to manage policy research projects, develop policy proposals and make the case for change to policy makers, regulators, firms and others.
The successful candidate will be intellectually curious, willing to engage with a range of issues from high level public policy to detailed technical regulation, and will have a positive and collegiate approach. You will have a strong understanding of the public policy making process and demonstrable experience of successfully influencing public policy.
We would expect candidates to have a strong understanding of one or more social policy issues linked to financial difficulty and problem debt; we will also support the successful candidate to expand their knowledge of regulatory or other policy areas in the role.
In the short-term, we expect the post holder to lead work on housing issues experienced by those affected by debt, government debt-collection practices and bailiff reform; however, there will be scope to develop the focus of the role and new projects in future.
We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all.
