Job Details

DeHavilland is looking for a Policy Coordinator to join its UK Team. Our Policy Coordinators support our Team in being the eyes and ears for our clients of what is going on in Westminster and beyond. The team provides live information and intelligence to help clients understand how the world of politics and policy impacts them, and we provide tools to help them more effectively engage with political stakeholders.

We very much see the Coordinator role as an “apprenticeship” to becoming a Policy Executive and many of our current Execs have been Coordinators. We want our Coordinators and Execs to become experts in their field and look to give them plenty of responsibility and training to help them get there. We have a very clear career path in place for people from day one, and because we’re part of Ascential, the specialist global information company, we have great benefits as well as a fantastic office in Savoy Court.

Your key responsibilities will include:
• Provide political intelligence and information to clients in daily/weekly reports
• Produce ad-hoc research for customers
• Support Executives with their everyday management of their accounts
• Provide live coverage of votes and debates in the Parliament
• Help keep our Legislation Tracker maintained
• Ensure relevant KPIs and targets are met in line with the business objectives

Your experience and knowledge
• A strong knowledge of UK policies and the political process
• Completed degree in political science or equivalent
• Experience of working in a political/public affairs role

Your skills and attributes
• Ability to deliver information accurately in a fast-paced environment and to think quickly to provide insights in alerts and reports
• First-class writing and oral skills in English at native level or equivalent
• A keen eye for quality and attention to detail
• Excellent time management skills and the ability to multi-task
• Strong communicator and interpersonal skills
• A flexible team-player with a high degree of motivation and pro-activeness

Closing Date: 29 March 2020
