Job Details

To build a fair education for all, we need to unlock the potential in all children – not just some. Together, we’re making it happen. Every day, our work takes us closer to a better future. But we need to do more. It’s a big challenge – and we need your help to take it on.

Millions of pupils have spent months out of the classroom. Before the pandemic hit too many pupils were already falling behind in school. The effects of this period will be long lasting and teachers in disadvantaged communities have huge challenges ahead. In this role you’ll build networks across Westminster and in the third sector to help get schools the support they need to build a fair education for all.

Do you have a passion for social justice and a talent for building relationships?
Do you have good political instincts? You’re skilled at monitoring the political, policy and sector landscape. You spot opportunities, risks and provide sound advice on how to respond.
Are your communication skills are second to none? You know how to tailor information for different audiences and channels. You’ve written briefings, consultation responses, website and social media content.
Do you have sharp analytical skills? You understand and communicate information quickly and clearly. Verbally and in writing.
Do you know how to use relationship management systems effectively?

Yes to the above? Then we want to hear from you. You might be our next Public Affairs Officer.
