Job Details

Catch22 exists to help build a society where everyone has a good place to live, good people around them, and a fulfilling purpose. We call these our '3Ps'.

We achieve this in two ways. Firstly, we improve lives on the frontline through delivery of public services. Secondly, we use our knowledge to change 'the system', to fix the complex web that can trap and disempower those it was set up to help. With the heart of a charity and the mindset of a business, we are uniquely placed to deliver on this challenging agenda.

We’re a large organisation, with over 120 services operating across 5 different hubs: justice, young people and families, education, employability and skills and apprenticeships.

Job Description
Reporting to the Director of Communications, you will play a key part in the shaping the direction of Catch22’s policy and influencing activity.

You will be responsible for progressing policy on our four priority areas: online harms, risk and resilience, youth employment and justice (victims services and rehabilitation). You will build strong relationships with stakeholders in order to pursue Catch22’s policy ‘asks’. You’ll also work closely with other organisations and within coalitions to drive policy changes for the benefit of the services users we work with.
