Salary: £30,942 - £34,804 per annum
Employment type: Permanent
Employment basis: Full-time
Post number: ZZ005215
You will work at the heart of the University helping to take the public policy function from good to excellent. The role will involve a variety of activities including policy briefings, horizon scanning, meeting MPs, organizing VIP visits, as well maintaining databases, and writing regular updates to stakeholders.
The role is an ideal development role for anyone who has a strong interest in working in public affairs and public policy. No prior experience of the Higher Education sector is required nor is it expected that, long-term, you will see yourself working in the Higher Education sector.
You will be comfortable with rapidly changing work priorities, using your initiative, making judgements, defending them, and giving advice with incomplete information, and working across the university with people of different seniority. You will get the support you need to develop your public policy skills and to give you the confidence necessary for the role.
Given the increasing public and political focus on universities, their public policy function is becoming increasingly important. You will report directly to the Strategic Policy Adviser who reports directly to the Vice-Chancellor.
