Though we live in challenging times, at Locality we believe we have a huge source of hope at our disposal: the power of community. There is a vast reservoir of ideas, innovation, knowledge and commitment that lives in our neighbourhoods.

We have recently set out a new Theory of Change, which outlines why we think community power has the answers to our biggest policy problems. We’ve also developed a revised influencing strategy to put community organisations at the forefront of national and local policymaking.

The Benefits

- 25 days’ holiday

The Role

You will oversee the delivery of our policy work and drive our influencing strategy forward.

Working closely with Locality members, you will build our evidence base and reputation as a thought leader, develop new relationships at a local and national level and project manage our major influencing campaigns, such as Keep it Local.

About You

To join us, you will need:

- Significant experience in managing and leading successful policy and influencing work, with the ability to build political relationships to support our strategies and government and parliamentary lobbying
- A clear and sophisticated understanding of the national and local policy context and the opportunities for community organisations

Additional Information

We expect the role to be full time, however, in line with our flexible working policies, if you would like to suggest alternative arrangements, just let us know.

We particularly welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our organisation and sector, such as disabled people and people from Black, Asian and minoritized ethnic communities.
