Are you ready to make a positive impact in the world?
“Climate injustice. Structural racism. Regional and economic inequality. At home and abroad, society is beset with deep-rooted social, cultural, environmental and economic problems. We can help solve them, and in doing so create a better world.”
UAL Strategy 2022-2032
We believe the world needs creativity. That’s why UAL is a social purpose university, dedicated to nurturing creativity and deploying it to help solve the world’s problems. At the core of our new 10-year strategy is a commitment to making the world a better place through our collective creative endeavour.
This is a time of great change, and great opportunity and we are looking for a unique, talented and focused individual to join our Policy and Advocacy Team. This is a brand-new role which will support the Associate Director Policy and Advocacy.
The post sits within the University’s recently formed Social Purpose Group which brings together a Social Purpose Lab, our fundraising team, our communications directorate, and our new Storytelling Institute: a hub for campaigners and artists to collaborate in the service of social purpose goals.
We need someone who can support the University in tackling some of the biggest, and trickiest problems facing the world today. You will have a good understanding of the UK political system, parliamentary procedures and events with a close interest in higher education and the creative economy. You will have worked in policy, public affairs or campaigns in HE, though we are happy to see candidates from other similar fields with relevant experience.
This is a unique opportunity for you to take the next step in your early career, or career change. Our small team is growing, and you will be a key part of it. You will be able to shape our advocacy messages and make sure they are being heard by the right people. You will support meetings with MPs, attend policy events, party conferences, and build your own network of contacts and relationships with people across the sector.
