About Best for Britain
Best for Britain is working to keep the UK closely aligned to Europe and to provide scrutiny of Government and Parliament as the UK navigates its post-Brexit role in the world. Our team comprises people from all political parties and none. We take pride in our all-party approach to political campaigning and the leading market research and polling that we produce. Our work is more vital than ever before as the UK deals with the double challenges posed by Coronavirus and life outside the EU.

The Role
Working closely with the Head of External Affairs, you will support Best for Britain’s public affairs activity, including its role as an APPG (All-Party Parliamentary Group) secretariat. Your primary responsibilities will be helping to maintain effective communication with “mission critical” stakeholders - from politicians, interest groups and partners relevant to Best for Britain’s activity and the APPG’s work.

This role involves stakeholder management, research and administrative responsibilities.

The role is fast-paced, changeable and requires strong communication and interpersonal skills. This role will suit someone who feels confident liaising with stakeholders of all levels.
